MITSUBISHI MATERIALS CORPORATION Metalworking solutions company (Company President: Shinichi Nakamura, Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) has added VAS300 to the existing series of indexable side and face cutters.
The VAS indexable side and face cutter series is a range of rotating tools for machining grooves and for shoulder milling components such as automobile cylinder blocks. The VAS cutters suppress chatter and vibration during machining due to a low cutting resistance insert geometry and also because of the strong clamping of the inserts.
1. Sophisticated simulation techniques have succeeded in achieving a low cutting resistance insert geometry that is optimal for steel machining.
2. A large clamping surface on the insert ensures stability during machining.
3. Corner radii of the inserts with an ideal cutting edge geometry ensures high geometrical accuracy and surface quality of the component.
