Even in its smallest diameter, FOURWORX promises to deliver its claimed four-fold benefits for high-feed milling - speed, feed, cutting depth and performance. Pokolm Frästechnik is launching the latest innovation in its milling cutter portfolio onto the market – a new high-performance milling system for roughing and pre-finishing applications in the field of high-feed machining. FOURWORX features a multitude of interesting properties that will enable users to break into previously unattainable realms of performance.
This performance boost is made possible by the completely redesigned geometry of the milling system, which ensures that, for the first time, even the smallest tool diameter of 16 mm can deploy three inserts. Pokolm is heralding this as a genuine first in the industry – one that enables cutting depths up to ap 0.75 mm and feed rates up to fz 1.2 mm/tooth. Should anyone doubt the stability of such small tool diameters, they are welcome to pay a visit to EMO Hannover 2017, where they can scrutinize the innovative geometry of FOURWORX, which is designed to guarantee maximum stability. Similar attributes apply to the inserts. Indeed, despite their compact dimensions, the inserts have an enormous service life, thanks to a clearly visible and innovative reinforcing collar around the screw seat and a negative insert seat. What’s more, chamfered outer edges prevent the inserts from spalling around the circumference.
FOURWORX is available in diameters of 16 to 42 mm in the form of end mills, threaded-shank mills and with the DUOPLUG system patented by Pokolm for optimized concentricity and maximum rigidity. All tools feature an internal coolant supply for absolute process reliability.
