Article From: 10/20/2011 Automotive Design & Production

Sandvik Coromant has developed three new end mill inserts for its CoroMill 316 exchangeable head milling system: a ballnose mill for profile milling, aluminum machining and finishing; a corner radius mill for slot, shoulder, plunge and face milling, as well as ramping and pocketing; and a chamfer mill for chamfer milling and spot drilling.The mills, all of which feature two cutting edges, extend the depth of cut range by 30% to 0.8 x cutting diameter (Dc) compared to previous CoroMill 316 end mills (0.5 x Dc).
