Guhring is releasing a range of tools especially for companies working in the mould and die industry. Among the stand-out performers is the G-Mold milling line, which allows manufacturers to benefit from longtool life and optimal component surfaces.
According to Guhring, the G-Mold milling series maximises tool life when machining materials up to 65HRc. With the new Guhring Signum and Perrox coating technologies, alongside an ultra-hard carbide substrate, G-Mold demonstrates extended tool life and high levels of machining performance. Indeed,further gains are available thanks to the Guhrojet peripheral cooling system that delivers through-tool coolant or compressed air to remove swarf.
G-Mold milling cutters are available in ball-nose, torus, finishing, radius finishing, universal and high-feed variants, all of which incorporate micron-precision radius accuracy. Three prominent arrivals among the range include the new 55 and 65 G-Mold Series ball-nose tools, and the high-feed range.
The new G-Mold 65B series of high-precision two- and four-flute ball-nose cutters for machining materials up to 65HRc incorporate a radius contour tolerance of ±0.005mm to ensure component contour accuracy and repeatability. The cuttersfeature centre-cutting geometry, and 25° flute and neck clearance for extended reach applications.
Alongside the G-Mold 65B, is the new G-Mold 55B series. More of an all-rounder, the G-Mold 55B is suitable for machining steel, stainless steel, cast iron, super alloys and hard materials up to 55HRc.
For mould tool companies that demand the epitome of high-performance cutting, the G-Mold 65 HF series is for high-feed roughing with low depths of cut and maximum feed rates to optimise metal removal rate. The G-Mold 65 HF high-feed series incorporates Guhring’s Guhrojet peripheral cooling from 1 to 3mm diameter with central through-coolant for 4mm diameter and above.
