Quickgrind Ltd. has an international reputation for the design, development and manufacture of solid carbide and high speed steel cutting tools for us
Quickgrind have launched its new Mirage Series of solid carbide end mills that outperform competitor products on stainless steel, super alloys and a selection of non-ferrous, high temperature alloys and cast iron.
As well as offering blistering performance on a variety of materials, the new Quickgrind Mirage Series has an ingenious geometry that allows end users to apply the Mirage to roughing, finishing, slotting and profiling as well as trochiodal milling and strategic HSM processes. This extensive capability reduces tool inventory and costs. The cost benefits can be extended with Quickgrind’s re-manufacture service that re-coats and re-grinds tools to as-new condition.
The Mirage Series enables customers to increase speed and feed rates to improve material removal rates beyond existing parameters whilst also suppressing vibration and extending tool life. All this is credit to a tool composition that consists of a force resistant sub-micro grain carbide that is layered with Quickgrind’s unique X-Red coating technology. Whilst the extremely tough and durable carbide composition forms the foundation for the extended tool life and performance of the Mirage, it’s the variable flute design and the centre cutting geometry that delivers the astounding material removal characteristics and the flexibility to conduct a multitude of processes.
The four flute X-Red coated end mills are available with a 3, 4, 5 and 6mm diameter, each consisting of a 6mm diameter H6 ground shank for enhanced strength, rigidity and performance.
These cutters are also Made in UK
