Chase2Feed BLMP 13, Perfect for High Feed Milling Applications ( Aug. 14. 2014 )

Chase2Feed is getting a boost with the introduction of the new BLMP 13 size insert and cutters that tackle machining applications of up to 2 millimeters in depth of milling during high-feed conditions.

The insert’s unique characteristics make it an excellent addition to the line which is specifically designed for heavy, die and mold, power generation and general industries milling applications.

Several characteristics of the BLMP 13 make it a perfect choice first of all, its reinforced unique design and high rake angle offers better anti-breakage capabilities. Next, its reduced cutting load over the BLMP 12 provides for excellent chip evacuation.

Other positive attributes to note is its 7 mm thickness and unique pocket seat which enables for stable machining in high-feed conditions and its six cutting edges – an added benefit over the previous Chase2Feed offering that came with four cutting edges.

Overall, the Chase2Feed's cost effective multiple cutting edges offer exceptional performance advantages in facing, shouldering, straight ramping, helical ramping and cavity machining.

During product tests, the Chase2Feed BLMP 13 registered a 242 percent increase in tool life and a 578 percent increase in productivity over a leading competitor’s similar offering while machining a work piece made from tool steel.

In the second case study, this time with a work piece made from SKD 61, TaeguTec’s BLMP 13’s tool life was extended by 116 percent and productivity by 309 percent.

The third case study of note found the BLMP 13 to increase tool life by 166 percent and an increase of 233 percent productivity over a competitor’s similar offering on an SUS 316LN-IP work piece.
