‘Complete package’ for non-ferrous machiningTeam Cutting Tools from Ceratizit (www.ceratizit.com) has completely re-vamped its range of high-performance solid-carbide milling cutters for machining aluminium and other non-ferrous materials.

The new AluLine series is a ‘complete package’ of cutters that extends to over 2,500 types covering rough and finish
machining. Users have multiple choices of corner preparation, with sharp, chamfered, radiused or ball-nose styles all available off-the-shelf.

AluLine cutters are available in diameters ranging from 2 to 25mm, together with a variety of flute and length configurations.

The performance of AluLine cutters is enhanced through the use of Ceratizit’s ‘extremely wear-resistant’ DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, which provides up to 80% of the hardness of natural diamond to protect from damage caused by built-up edges or abrasive alloy accretions, in order to deliver extended tool life and allow the use of ‘elevated cutting data’.

Where the application demands it, uncoated cutters are available as standard across much of the range.

Further enhancing customer choice is the availability of a wide variety of flute geo-metries, flute depths and flute lengths, as well as polished flutes.

Tony Pennington, managing director of Sheffield-based Ceratizit UK & Ireland, said: “The new range of AluLine solid-carbide cutters provides the widest choice for machining aluminium and non-ferrous materials, thanks to its combination of substrate, geometry and DLC coating — plus ex-stock availability on a diverse range of cutter styles.

"The addition of even more choice when it comes to corner radii — ranging from 0.3 to 4.0mm — will be of particular interest to the aerospace sector.”
