Optimized Milling for Vibration-Free Machining

Sandvik Coromant offers a high-feed milling tool, the CoroMill MH20, that is primarily designed for milling cavities or pockets in ISO S, M and P materials. Providing secure and vibration-free machining, especially at long overhangs, the CoroMill MH20 offers enhanced edge security for a variety of industries.

The tool's ability to machine at long overhangs makes it especially beneficial for the aerospace sector. "This method is an important requirement when machining deep, narrow pockets to produce the components that form an aircraft's frame, such as the supporting beams found within the sub-segment aerospace frame," said a company spokesperson. "These beams are often machined from forged titanium. When paired with the requirement for long overhangs, this creates a difficult machining environment with a high risk of vibration."

In contrast to the conventional four-edge concept, the CoroMill MH20 is designed with a two-edge insert. "This is especially beneficial because it means the weakest section of the insert is far away from the main cutting zone, delivering greater reliability and protection against wear," said the spokesperson. "It also means that machining against a corner or wall will not impact the next edge or leading corner, ensuring equal performance per edge."

Another area of innovation is the CoroMill MH20's insert cutting edge geometry. "While the sloped edge design delivers a gradual, light-cutting action that requires less power consumption to enable the use of smaller machines, the optimized edge line of the main cutting edge and insert corner radius offer further process security, enabling reliable, unmanned machining," said the spokesperson.
