➕ Uncompromising face milling of cylinder heads and crankcases
➕ Virtually chipless components
thanks to the suction effect
➕ No adjustment effort
because 100% Plug & Play
Our PCD face milling cutter MaxiMill SEC12 is the ideal tool for the automotive industry for the machining of crankcases, cylinder heads and other components made of aluminium or non-ferrous metals, in which no chips should be inside. Due to the special design of the insert seats and insert topology, supported by the coolant pressure, a suction is created at high speeds which removes almost 100 percent of the chips from the workpiece.
Anyone working in engine production knows the problem: During conventional face milling of crankcases and cylinder heads, chips fall into the existing water chambers and jam there in such a way that they cannot be completely removed by the automated cleaning process. They have to be removed in laborious, time-consuming manual work, which means an additional effort. If this is not successful, the expensive component is even scrap.
The PCD face milling cutter MaxiMill SEC12 (Suction Effect Cutter / insert size 12) puts an end to this problem and saves time and costs. Thanks to inserts with a ground chip evacuation notch and their ingenious setting in the milling cutter body, the tool develops a suction that removes the chips from the component. The angle of evacuation from the plane surface is about 30 degrees, which means that almost no chips can get inside the component. The removal is supported by the cooling lubricant, which brings the appropriate pressure behind the chips through its special guide.
The "suction milling cutter" MaxiMill SEC12 produces convincing results in practice, for example when face milling a crankcase made of AlSi7MgCu0.5 on three sides, using the variant with 125 mm diameter (12 teeth).
The cutting edge geometry, cutting edge adjustment and coolant jet of the MaxiMill SEC12 create a suction effect for almost chipless components
→ In this way, 40,000 components can be processed per placement, in impressive time, quality and almost chip-free.
Even the inserts can be mounted without adjustment effort thanks to the highest precision. For particularly high quality requirements, the user can fine-balance the tools by means of heavy metal screws on the cutter collar - up to a balance quality of G2.5. The resulting high concentricity protects the spindle, ensures longer tool life, lower vibrations and even enables a surface quality of approx. Rz=20µm during roughing.
