Sandvik Coromant CoroMill 415 Features iLock Insert Seat Interface Technology

November 2, 2016

A high feed milling cutter for diameters 13-25 mm and 0.500-1.000 inches has been introduced by Sandvik Coromant. Among the advantages of using the new CoroMill 415 are enhanced security, thanks to iLock insert seat interface technology, and high metal removal rates as a result of high cutter density and high feed capacity.

CoroMill 415 covers the application area between Sandvik Coromant's current round tools product offer and existing high feed products such as CoroMill 210 and CoroMill 419.

A major feature is the cutter's iLock insert seat interface, which has been designed to deliver high stability and reduce the potential for scrap workpieces. In addition, the insert seat itself ensures that the small inserts are easier to handle.

The extra stability during cutting is one of the factors that makes CoroMill 415 a suitable option for machine shops seeking productive solutions. For example, the tool is capable of delivering elevated metal removal rates, an outcome that is supported further by the cutter's high density and high feed capacity. In turn, high metal removal rates help increase productivity. This is supplemented by the extra-close H pitch, which can be deployed thanks to the tool's inherent high stability, ensuring more than one tooth is always engaged in the cut.

A further benefit for manufacturers is that, although the inserts are small, each offers four cutting edges to help reduce cost per component and boost competitive advantage.

For those looking to lower their tooling inventory and minimize machine downtime, CoroMill 415 is also available with the Coromant EH (Exchangeable Head) interface. With Coromant EH, manufacturers can access a wide assortment of solid carbide cutting heads, indexable milling cutters, boring heads, integrated machine adapters and shanks to reduce their inventory of tools.

This added versatility is backed by the suitability of CoroMill 415 for all ISO materials and many different component machining applications.
