To efficiently rough and finish medium to large part surface areas, Ceratizit USA Inc showed its universal MaxiMill 251 indexable carbide insert freeform milling system at IMTS. While well suited for any application and machining strategy, the MaxiMill excels in multi-axis machining of challenging part contours such those found on turbine blade airfoils.
Within the MaxiMill 251 system is a wide range of tools and inserts. Those include CTCS245 and CTC5240 coated carbide insert grades. CTCS245 is for machining nickel-based alloys, and the CTC5240 grade makes easy work of cutting titanium.
Using a universal button insert system, the MaxiMill cutter bodies position inserts in a positive orientation. This ensures exceptionally smooth cutting and reduces cutting forces, especially in unstable workpiece situations.
