Finishing end mills DS
With the solid carbide tools from the DS milling cutter family, HORN is incorporating top-class products into its portfolio for machining copper, graphite, aluminium, plastics, fibrereinforced plastics, soft and hardened steels as well as titanium and superalloys. The end, torus, full radius, double radius, multi-edge and roughing cutters are available in diameters from 2 to 16 mm, and micro end mills have diameters ≥ 0.2 mm. The h5-quality tool shanks impress have impressive concentricity of 0.005 mm, which makes them ideal for finishing operations.
The expertise acquired in a whole host of applications is now demonstrated in the new products added to the DSM multi-flute cutters. With an extended working range from 2 to 20 mm, the finishing mills with six to eight flutes are available for machining depths that are 2 x, 3 x and 4 x the diameter in a sharp-edged version or with a corner radius of 0.2 / 0.5 and 1.0 mm. Their precision-ground flutes ensure good chip flow and the optimised geometry produces the best-possible surface finishes, for example Ra ≥ 0.1 μm for 42CrMo4. When machining steels, cast iron and hard-to-cut materials, the geometry ensures an even wear rate and the new coating increases tool life.
