1. Trimming

Cutting tool life is usually extremely short because of the high strength of carbon fibre, additionally delamination and burring easily occurs during cutting, thus it is effective to use a tool that applies coating with high wear resistance.
The DFC endmills reduce burrs and delamination due to a CVD diamond coating technology in combination with an optimized tool geometry, thereby achieving a long tool life and high-quality machining.

1. Face Milling, Pocket Milling

Milling of rib type components involves removing large volume over 90 %. Thus, high efficient machining at high speed is required to reduce cost.

The AXD series achieves low cutting resistance without lowering the insert edge strength due to a helical flank and optimized of the relief angle.
Additionally, the convex cutting edge allows good chip removal, resulting in high speed and high efficiency machining.

Use of MP9120 grade is highly effective in super-high-speed cutting.

The ALIMASTER series achieves good chip removal due to the unique crosssectional shape of the flute geometry shape. This enables high speed and high efficiency machining.

The head of exchangeable head end mills iMX for machining of aluminium alloy prevents welding due to the large rake angle and the mirror treatment for improved efficiency.

When rough machining titanium alloy, chipping and abnormal damage of the cutting edge easily occurs if low rigidity tools are used. Using high rigidity tools and low cutting resistance inserts are recommended. Stable machining is possible because the VFX series has a high rigidity design and cutting resistance is lower due to the convex curve cutting edge and the V-formation of the clamping face.

ARP Series : When rough machining of titanium alloys due to the type of chips generated problems relating to chipping and fracturing are common. The ARP series inserts are available in 3 breaker geometries and with the new MP9130 tool grade. This combination results in stable machining when carrying out roughing and finishing application of titanium alloys.
Coolstar Series : When machining titanium alloys due to the fact that the thermal conductivity is low heat generated during machining localizes around the cutting edge. This results in welding problems and as such it is necessary to prevent heat generation and to remove the chips effectively. The Coolstar series is designed with multiple through coolant hole in the flutes of the tool. This ensures effective cooling and improves chip evacuation.

Ni based difficult-to-cut heat resistant alloys such as Inconel® 718 soften at temperatures exceeding 800ºC. At these temperatures, difficult-to-cut materials become easier to machine because their bearing and tensile strengths are lowered.
Ceramic end mills can work effectively at these high temperatures and self generate the heat required to soften the machined material through ultra-high feeds and speeds.

2. Machining of upper surface resistance insert of protuberance

When machining Ni-based alloys which have low thermal conductivity and are subjected to work hardening, well-balanced cutting edge and superior coating grade are required.
APX series extends tool life greatly due to optimized cutting edge geometry and new grade insert.

3. Drilling

The key is how to cool a cutting edge when drilling Ni-based alloys.
It is possible to extend tool life greatly by using a solid carbide drill that employs TRI-Cooling through coolant technology with a high-pressure coolant supply.

Titanium-aluminium alloy has low thermal conductivity and tends to concentrate heat on the cutting edge and moreover scratch can occur easily on the cutting surface when cutting Titanium-aluminium alloy. Therefore, it is important to remove heat on the cutting edge efficiently and to evacuate chips smoothly. The Smart Miracle end mills series with an optimum balance of sharpness and smoothness of the coating layer due to Mitsubishi original smoothening treatment enables stable cutting.
