The Eliminator Range of Conical Barrel Tools

Posted by

Referred to as conical barrel tools, the new series of Eliminator end mills for 5-axis machining incorporate a conical or tapered form that will deliver a cycle time reduction of up to 95%. This bold claim is substantiated by the ability of the Eliminator to significantly reduce tool path distances whilst utilising the full flute length to increase the step down rate and the subsequent material removal rates.

From an application perspective, the new Eliminator conical barrel tools are suited to semi-finish and finish machining processes on a wide range of components and materials that span the mould & die, motorsport, medical, oil & gas and particularly the aerospace sector and turbine blade production. The solid carbide end mills are available uncoated or with Quickgrind’s Type D geometry with an MX coating for the machining of low and medium alloy steel, tool steel, cast iron and hardened steels whilst the Type S end mills are XRED coated for the high performance machining of high temperature alloys such as Inconel, Hastelloy and Titanium as well as the complete range of stainless steels.

To benefit from such huge cycle time reductions, manufacturers must first be utilising 5-axis machine tools and Quickgrind recommends that secondly, machine shops are implementing groundbreaking machining strategies from leading CAM vendors. To investigate the best exploitation of machining strategies, Quickgrind can offer support through its QuickCAMPro engineering service.
