Multiflute end mills

  • 04-Dec-2009 03:15 EST

HXF multiflute end mills from Helical enable higher feed rates for finishing difficult materials. The HXF and HXF-RN end mill series feature corner radii for added strength and high-helix-angle flutes for smoother cutting and a better finish. The tools are designed for small radial depths of cut up to 6% of cutter diameter and axial depths up to 1 to 1.5 times cutter diameter. The increased number of flutes, along with the proper use of radial chip thinning techniques, will enable enhanced finishing operations and reduced cycle times. The end mills are made of submicron-grain carbide and feature geometries engineered to cut difficult material. The tools come with an AlTiN coating for oxidation resistance and extreme hardness for slotting and peripheral-milling stainless and other steels, cast irons, titanium alloys, and cobalt-, nickel-, and iron-based high-temperature alloys.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
