ITC brings harmony to high performance milling

For machining of hard steels and aerospace alloys, Industrial Tooling Corp (ITC) has now launched its new 5021 Cyber Series of 5 flute harmonic end mills. The new 5021 Series has been developed specifically to deliver high machining performance and productivity benefits when processing difficult materials.

As an integrated partner and preferred supplier to many global aerospace OEMs, Tamworth based ITC has worked strenuously with its customers that are renowned as the benchmark in high technology industries to provide an astounding series of new milling cutters. The new 5021 Series is a straight shank, square end centre cutting range with a radical new flute geometry for staggering material removal rates.

The solid carbide 5021 is manufactured from ultra wear resistant micro grain carbide that is Cupro coated to enhance tool life and machining stability. Despite having a long length that offers additional reach benefits for the user, the cutters demonstrate stability and rigidity that far exceeds competitor products. This is credit to the unequal flute spacing that reduces machining noise and vibration by eliminating the harmonic effect of the cutters.

With exceptional tool life, machining speeds and feeds that will astound customers, enhanced productivity and cost reductions is a given. As well as a long reach with an overall length of up to 150mm and a cutting length up to 60mm, the 5021 square end series is also available with a range of corner radii to further enhance tool life and meet the customers' wide spectrum of machining needs.

The right hand cutting and right hand helix range is available in diameters that include 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 25 and 32mm. The 3, 4 and 5mm cutters are available with a square end or 0.5mm radius whereas the 6mm diameter has a 0.5, 0.75 and 1mm radius. The 8 and 10mm cutters offer the same radius options as the smaller cutters with the addition of a 1.5, 2 and 3mm radius whilst the 16 and 20mm cutters also offer a 4mm radius. The series has been optimally designed to enhance machining stability and performance with a length of cut ranging from 9 to 60mm for the complete range.

To optimise the performance levels of the 5021 Cyber Series, ITC recommends a rigid and robust machine tool and workholding set-up. For end users unfamiliar with extremely high performance milling, ITC has technical engineers to discuss individual customer requirements.
