Tungaloy continues to expand its innovative product offerings with the recent high profile, global launch of the company’s TUNGFORCE campaign. The TUNGFORCE launch was the largest introduction of innovative new products in Tungaloy’s 86 year history. All TUNGFORCE products will be on display at IMTS. A few are revealed below.
Miniature/MiniForceTurn – These innovative double-sided, positive inserts are securely locked into their toolholder by means of a dovetail, providing very robust and rigid clamping. The inserts are designed to replace traditional CCMT, DCMT and VBMT type positive inserts. Not only do they offer beneficial double sided economy, but the new inserts remarkable performance far exceeds that of traditional products. These innovative tools are ideal for Swiss type machining, for general engineering applications and for automotive market sector’s use.
Grooving/TetraForce-Cut – Precision grooving inserts with four cutting edges. These innovative tools are capable of directional parting off, flat bottom grooving and full radius grooving. The inserts feature chip breakers suitable for all materials, making this product ideal for the general machining and small parts machining industries.
MillQuadFeed- Tungaloy is an acknowledged pioneer in high feed milling. To complement its market leading DoFeed line of high feed products, Tungaloy has introduced MillQuadFeed. This workhorse achieves incredible metal removal rates with feed rate capabilities of 0.078” (2mm) per tooth and depth of cut capabilities of 0.98” (2.5mm) with additional large ramping capabilities. MillQuadFeed is ideal for most machining sectors, although it is ideal for use in die and mold, heavy industries, forgings, oil and gas, aerospace and general machining.
DoForce-Tri- Building on the worldwide market success of Tungaloy’s 90 degree, shoulder milling category leader, Tung-Tri, Tungaloy has introduced a double sided version, now offering 6 cutting edges. The impressive free cutting nature of the inserts allows large depths of cut. The new inserts are available in wiper type, radius type and chip splitter type geometries. This versatile tool is applicable for use in all machining industries.
TungForce-Rec- This mini shoulder milling line offers a unique shaped miniature insert with a robust clamping mechanism. TungForce-Rec produces high wall accuracy and good surface finish while providing the advantage of running at high feed. Inserts are available in standard chipbreakers and the specially designed chipbreakers for aluminium. The cutters range from 0.313” (8mm) diameter, making this tool a great alternative to solid carbide end mills.
DrillForce-Meister- In a quest to further accelerate holemaking operations, Tungaloy introduced the DrillForce-Meister. This innovative tool, designed for large diameter drilling 1.024” – 1.614” (26 – 41mm) diameter, offers two effective teeth, double that of indexable drills. DrillForce-Meister reduces cycle times by half. These drills offer a quick change insert that can be indexed accurately, thus providing reliable machining repeatability and reducing machine downtime.
