TaeguTec introduces higher productivity finishing FINE-BARREL inserts for profile milling.
The FINE-BARREL product line has introduced two barrel type inserts available in various sizes: the NFLB lens type and the NFCB chamfer type. Both inserts include a large radius cutting edge that increases productivity by more than 40% compared to the ball type insert, as they are capable of wide pitch machining.
The NFLB lens type allows for machining in a variety of profile forms thanks to its combined bottom and side cutting edges. Furthermore, depending on the cutting edge choice made during CAM programming, the two cutting edges can be used independently.
The inclined edge of the NFCB chamfer insert increases efficiency while also allowing for short overhang machining of inclined profiles. Additionally, the bottom radius edge can perform the same operations as the ball type end mill.
FINE-BARREL inserts are compatible with the FINE-BALL product line's TNF holders, allowing for a wide variety of shank choices.
Please note that to use barrel tools on 5-axis machining centers, CAM software is required. CAM software support is currently offered for hyperMILL and CATIA NC.
