Combining solid performance with the ability to support multiple materials and heavy machining, the Force AD assortment is seen as an ideal option for many operations such as ramping, helical interpolation and plunging. As the manufacturers report, the durable and versatile milling cutters are available with a wide choice of diameters from 10 to 175 mm and provide reliable clamping of the inserts, particularly within the helical range. In addition, the specially grooved body serves to promote fast and efficient chip removal. Both features in combination are said to yield a more accurate cutting process and very high operating safety with high stability during machining. In addition, a positive geometry with a rake angle of 25° allows for a reduction in cutting forces, offering good productivity, lower machine power consumption and longer tool life. Moreover, the cutting-edge shape has been optimized to provide higher impact resistance and smooth machining. This, in turn, leads to a better workpiece surface finish, as the exhibitors point out. Compatible with a wide variety of cutter bodies, internal coolant supply is supported across the entire range.
The universal 90° milling cutters from the Force AD range offer high reliability in a wide spectrum of applications, even under unfavorable cutting conditions, according to Dormer Pramet. A broad program of indexable inserts is available from the company for the cutters, including the ADMX 07, ADMX 11 and ADMX 16.
