◆Development of PCD Fine Pitch Tooth Facemill
By Mr. Yasuyuki Kannda, Mr. Naoya Honda
The bottleneck of aluminum production line for vehicles is its cutting area and cutting time. Larger the size of the vehicle, its cutting area and cutting time tend to be larger and longer. Especially for cutting matching surface for timing chain covers and crankcases, conventional face mills with either disposal or brazed tooth type are often used. Due to the heat affection on brazed part and clamping area for disposal tooth inserts on face mills, they restrict the number of teeth.
With Kanefusa's innovative brazing technology, we achieved to minimize the heat affection area, thus succeeded to produce fine pitch tooth face mill with the teeth number 1.5 to 3 times more than conventional face mills.
