"Challenge us to help you do what you do more effectively." Those were the words of Ingersoll Cutting Tools President Chuck Edler as he kicked off the Die & Mold Seminar yesterday, which honed in on understanding the precise tools necessary for the delicate processes of mold manufacturing--milling, high-volume roughing, high-feed roughing, aluminum machining, gun drilling and hole making to name a few.
Some takeaways included:
Technology highlights included the Form-Master Shear--excellent for those aluminum prototype molds; the Form-Master Speed--for high-feed roughing and plunging; and, the U.S.-designed "champion" Hi Quad F--whose four cutting edges with a choice of eight different cutting edge geometries, ensures long tool life even under the most demanding applications across the widest range of materials.
