ZCC Cutting Tools Europe GmbH’s Product Innovation catalogue 09/2022 is once again focused on milling applications. The Düsseldorf-based company has launched three new product lines and three expanded product lines for both milling and turning, just in time for AMB 2022:
The new EMP14 aluminium milling system, comprising roughing cutters for shoulder milling at precisely 90°, highly compact system that makes it possible to not only achieve a high feed rate when roughing, but also create ultra-high surface qualities when finishing. The wide assortment of nose radii that are available to choose from (0.2–5.0 mm) means it is targeted at meeting the requirements found in the aerospace industry.
ZCC Cutting Tools’ new FMR11 round insert milling cutter makes achieving maximum machining capacities a reality. Indexing on the durable milling body and the inserts ensures the optimum use of the cutting edge in a wide range of applications. The round insert delivers high feed rates and machining capacities, and it is also well-suited for die and mould making.
The solid carbide milling cutters of ‘high-speed full-slot milling’ fame from the VPM series launched back in spring, which were specially developed for full-slot milling and applications involving large contact widths, are now also available as torus milling cutters in end and QCH (quick-change head) versions. The VPM-4E milling cutters are now also available in Weldon versions. Much higher chip removal rates coupled with the high process reliability that you’ve come to know are made possible by the VPM milling cutters’ new geometry.
The established FMA12 face milling system, which is already cut above thanks to its large range of inserts and maximum efficiency, has now added another insert size to the mix – ONHU09T5. The new cutting geometries produce a smooth cut, thus reducing the amount of power that the machine needs to consume. The indexable milling cutters boast a high cost-benefit factor thanks to their 16 cutting edges.
The introduction of the zType threading inserts sees ZCC Cutting Tools change systems in high-quality thread machining. The new zType threading inserts’ precision-ground cutting edges allow tool life to be increased by 20–30 per cent, while the new chamfer design makes them highly compatible with commercially available systems, which provides a tremendous degree of flexibility.
Medium turning made even easier – thanks to the new XMH chip breaker. Its positive geometry makes it possible to achieve low cutting forces and high feed rates when machining steel. The XMH is a new addition to the X series, which also features the proven XF chip breakers for finishing and XM chip breakers for medium turning, and is recommended for machines with low power consumption.
Product Innovations 09/2022 follows in ZCC Cutting Tools Europe’s tradition of presenting a constant flow of new products and additions to existing series each spring and autumn to fill the gap between its yearly catalogues published every two years. Our sales team and distribution partners will undergo special training so that they will be able to tell customers about the many advantages that the new products have to offer and give them the accompanying service and support whenever they need it.
You will find ZCC Cutting Tools GmbH at AMB 2022 in Hall 3, Booth 3D11.
