As the company explains, the V5LCB series has a five-flute design with integral chip breakers that enables the full flute depth to be utilized in high-speed machining (HSM) applications to yield exceptional metal removal rates. The flutes are precision-ground with an unequal pitch to remove harmonic vibration and the range is available in diameters from 8 mm to 16 mm. In addition, the English exhibitors will be demonstrating a range of machining process improvement technologies as part of their integrated manufacturing solutions (IMS) program. As the developers report, the concept combines the company's high-performance tooling and Rego-Fix non-pull-out tool holders with high-speed machining (HSM) tool path software and Blue-Swarf Dashboard anti-vibration analysis to optimize the machining process for virtually any component.
