The iMX series is a revolutionary end mill system that enables efficiency, high accuracy and rigidity by combining the advantages of both solid carbide and indexable end mills.
Security and rigidity close to that of a solid type end mill because the clamping faces are all carbide.
Excellent for reduced inventory over a variety of applications due to the exchangeable head.
The double face contact of the carbide head and carbide holder gives an increase in rigidity of 30%.
The reliability of the screw fastening is significantly improved when compared to conventional that employ only steel fastenings. It is also able to cope with high cutting loads.
A corner radius roughing type with a centre through coolant hole. The roughing edge geometry
reduces cutting resistance and is effective for low rigidity and long tool overhang applications.
The combination of the (Al,Cr,Si)N coating (newly-developed),which has a high oxidation temperature and high lubricity,together with the (Al,Ti,Si)N coating,which has better wear resistance and high adhesion,allows hardened steel with even greater strength to be maintained.
Taper radius end mills(Torus cutter) were conventionally used for turbine blade finishing.
iMX taper radius offers the performance equivalent to solid end mills and it can achieve lower milling cost.
Possible to process using a large pick feed (pf) when the cusp height is shortened and fixed even using the same pf.
Standardized ideal shape for different chamfer cutting regions.
Series expansion of efficient steel holders
Developed series of efficient steel holders based on a carbide holder for low cut processing when the overhang is short.
A tool life achieves at least 3 x longer compared with conventional steel holders.
Duplex corner radius head with coolant hole, 4 flute, For high feed
High efficiency machining geometry
Thin chips and a long cutting edge combine to
provide both high performance and long tool life.
Vibration control geometry
Reduced cutting resistance in the radial direction
suppresses tool vibration and reduces deflection.
