ITC Plays a Long Game with New Aluminium Milling Series
Already leading the industry with its aluminium milling technology, Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) Ltd has further strengthened its position with the arrival of the latest 3204 Series of end mills.
The impressive new 3-flute series of solid carbide end mills have been developed with a long flute length for reaching into cavities with unsurpassed levels of rigidity and performance. Combining a centre cutting geometry with ITC’s latest chip breaking technology, the new 3204 Series impresses with its astounding material removal rates and surface finishes.
Manufactured from a high-performance micro-grain carbide composition that generates exceptional tool life and wear resistance, the performance of the premium grade carbide is maximised by the innovative geometry.
Developed in conjunction with its UK customer base, the new 3204 Series incorporates a strengthened core diameter and efficient geometry design that rapidly expedites chips from the work envelope whilst minimising vibration and stabilising performance. Perfect for everything from rough to semi-finish machining, the new centre cutting 3204 Series rapidly expedites chips from the work area to enhance surface finishes and prevent re-cutting.
The exciting new 3204 Series is available in diameters of 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20mm with an overall length of 100mm for tools from 6 to 12mm and an overall length of 150mm for the 16 and 20mm variants. This tool length has been optimised in line with customer feedback and this provides a flute length from 35mm to 80mm depending upon the chosen tool diameter, a factor that has already proven to increase stability, rigidity, longevity and overall performance over previous product lines.
This proven overall length and flute length combination are the result of extensive trials and testing that have resulted in an extremely high-performance series of end mills.
