Expanded TuffCut XV Family

M.A. Ford has added the TuffCut XV7 series as well as the XV7CB with staggered chipbreakers to its TuffCut XV family.

This center-cutting, seven-flute high performance end mill is designed for dynamic milling and finishing strategies. It is optimized for difficult-to-machine materials such as titanium, high temp alloys and stainless steels. "The XV7 produces optimal metal removal rates and strength in dynamic milling strategies while still maintaining the processing integrity," said a company spokesperson. "Its proven 180 series geometry, along with some unique enhancements, allows for more efficient ramping and enhanced floor finishes."

Offered in a variety of flute lengths ranging from 1xD up to 4xD, as well as a full range of standard aerospace corner radius options, the XV7 is a versatile offering designed to boost productivity and tool life.

The TuffCut XV7CB option is offered in flute lengths 3xD and 4xD. "The tools combined variable pitch geometry, thick core design and unique center-cutting end geometry minimizes harmonic vibration and allows for smooth cutting action. The staggered chipbreaker technology reduces cutting force and allows for excellent chip management," said the spokesperson. "Its thick core design and long cutting length options make it a reliable and versatile tool that can be used across many industries and applications. The XV7/XV7CB series offers aerospace, defense, oil and gas and medical industries a durable cutting tool that stands up to its workload."
