FineBall Intensified with Expansion ( Aug. 01. 2014 )

The FineBall line’s smooth and stable machining for the mold and die and aerospace industries has been expanded to include a variety of steel and carbide shanks, as well as modular head types.

The expansion of the FineBall line not only provides the same optimal solution manufacturers the world over trust in their cutting tool, but can now perform more cost effective machining solutions on a wider range of applications.

Inserts for the FineBall line are available as either Ball type or Corner R types.

In this insert and holder line expansion, the corner radius insert diameters are available in 11, 13, 17, 21, 26, 30 and 32 millimeters.

Furthermore, five of the different insert corner radius sizes that have been introduced – from 11 to 26 mm – can be mounted in the corresponding standard holders smaller than 1 mm thus providing additional clearance between insert and tool shank which prevents interference between the tool and the workpiece.

FineBall’s excellent runout and precision includes TaeguTec’s TNF holders that have been expanded to include various neck and overall lengths while the development of the TNFR holders now includes 30 and 32 mm diameters for the offering.

The Asian cutting tool giant’s FineBall expansion of standard inserts and holders is ideally suited to machine on a wide range of finishing applications and is characterized by more rigid and secure clamping while its internal coolant system permits excellent chip evacuation and prolonged tool life.
