At last week’s MACH exhibition in Birmingham, UK, TaeguTec demonstrated the benefits of its ChaseMold range. Continually developing new geometries and insert grades, two recent additions have been the RTMX and RTHX five-edged insert line. Developed for high-speed machining of stainless steel and difficult-to-cut materials, the two grades are available in 10 and 12 mm sizes, and incorporate a high positive rake angle for low cutting resistance.
The ChaseMold Series is available in end mills up to 32 mm diameter, modular-type tool bodies of 25-40 mm diameter and face-mill designations of 40-80 mm diameter. All tool-body types incorporate a through-coolant facility for easy chip evacuation.
At MACH, the ChaseMold line was complemented by the ChaseFeed series. One of the more recent additions to the ChaseFeed family at the show was the small, high-positive SBMT09 insert line. The ChaseFeed family of SBMT09 inserts and relevant tool holders has been introduced to permit the same high-feed performance characteristics to smaller depth-of-cut applications.
From its drilling portfolio, TaeguTec was keen to showcase the DrillRush line (pictured). As TaeguTec’s marquee indexable-head drilling line, DrillRush is available in diameters from 6 to 25.9 mm, with most variants available in 0.1mm increments. Continually being developed and extended, one of the more recent lines is the 12xD drills. Available in diameters from 12 to 22.9 mm, the twist drill can be supplied in 1.5, 3, 5 and 8xD variants. Incorporating polished flutes, through-coolant and a wide chip gullet with an optimised geometry, DrillRush rapidly evacuates swarf from the drill point, says TaeguTec.
