New cutters for milling titanium

Horn has launched a new range of solid carbide milling cutters designed for machining titanium alloys such as Ti6Al4V.

Comprising diameters from 2mm to 20mm, available in four and five flute geometries with a cutting edge length of 2xD and 3Xd, the new grade TSTK is intended for machining titanium. As well as offering good tribological properties and high temperature resistance, the material transmits minimal heat into the substrate and acts as a kind of thermal shield.

Further important characteristics of the newly designed solid carbide end mills are alternative helix angles and pitches to ensure a softer, more gentle cut, therefore eliminating vibration and chatter.
