TaeguTec’s Carbide T-FlexTec is no Simple Long Shot ( Oct. 30. 2013 )

Long-reach machining has always brought about some difficult to overcome challenges but there are tools that offer excellent precision even in long overhang conditions.

TaeguTec’s multi-purpose Carbide T-FlexTec employs an all new shank technology that provides higher rigidity and flexibility while reducing cost and machining time.

The Carbide T-FlexTec shanks work in unison with a series of TaeguTec modular milling cutters to not only ensure smooth cutting and excellent finish, but also perform in such a way that productivity has been increased through high feed rates without the associated vibrations that are all too common when machining long to reach places in the machining world.

TaeguTec’s T-FlexTec shank features a precision ground thread design that ensures excellent accuracy (run-out), a simplified mounting screw type for easy clamping and shorter indexing time. Also, the design allows for rough as well as finish milling applications.

Other important features is the stable machining even in deep machining conditions, internal coolant holes that enables easy chip evacuation and short indexing time.

The all new Carbide T-FlexTec is about productivity and efficiency, its rigid design means achieving a desired surface finish in various cuts of depth.

Regardless of the milling application, the Carbide T-FlexTec shank is a tool that effortlessly handles increased feed rates with reduced vibrations.

The shanks come in diameters of 16, 20, 25 and 32 mm.
