HOUSTEX 2013: Ring Groove Cutter

Ring Groove Cutter
Excelerator Milling system and its new Ring Max II and III ring-groove cutter lines, all using whisker-reinforced ceramic inserts, will be showcased. Excelerator Mills are designed for high-performance milling in difficult-to-machine materials using advanced carbide or ceramic inserts. Typical application areas include most hardened materials above Rc 40 and nickel and cobalt-based super alloys. Ring Max ring-groove cutters are engineered to reduce the machining time of API ring grooves. Ring Max tools can reduce cutting time from 30 minutes or more to less than one minute. The Ring Max III system offers many head and shank configurations, including adaptability to Greenleaf’s Excelerator face mills. Whisker-reinforced ceramic inserts can outperform carbide and silicon nitride-based ceramics in heat-resistant alloys, hard steels, weld overlays and 400-series stainless steels.
