Cutting edge solutions from Guhring

Birmingham cutting tool manufacturer, Guhring, will introduce its high-performance line of end mills and latest addition to its extensive holemaking portfolio at Southern Manufacturing 2020.

Among them is the new RF Speed milling range that has been developed for the machining of very tough materials. The five-fluted RF100 5-Speed and sevn-fluted RF100 7-Speed solid carbide end mills generate high metal removal rates with stable process reliability, even when processing the most difficult-to-machine materials, says the company. Providing high-performance roughing at high cutting depths, the two new ranges maximise feed rate parameters during large metal removal rates for machining tough stainless steels, special alloys and a wide variety of steel and cast-iron grades.

There will also be the new RT100XF, which has been developed to reduce cycle times for difficult-to-machine materials and special applications in series production. It is said to be extremely resilient to potential breakages, due to the new carbide grade developed by the company. The drill supports the robust performance of the carbide grade and surface treatment with an early double margin support to ensure bore size and roundness. Available in 5XD and 7XD, the new drills can be purchased in diameters from 3.0 to 20mm diameter with 0.1mm increments. The series is also offered with all common imperial dimensions.

The team will be on hand to demonstrate and discuss some of the new products from the High Performance Tools for Machining Modern Composite Materials brochure, which includes the latest solid carbide and PCD drills and end mills, taps, slot drills and PCD compression milling cutters to meet the evolving needs of markets that range from aerospace, automotive and power generation to marine, medical, sport and hobbyist sectors.
