The new ArCut X cutter lets you make brilliant surfaces in next to no time. This makes it the perfect finishing tool whenever an excellent surface quality is demanded – with the added bonus of time savings of up to 90% compared with ball nose end milling, too.
ArCut X is a circular arc milling cutter whose curved surface area has a radius of curvature of up to 1,000 mm. Thanks to this large radius of curvature, its possible to realise larger step-over distances without any significant impact on the theoretical scallop height. The result is highly precise surfaces with brilliant surface characteristics that can minimise the amount of time spent polishing. As the tip of the ArCut X milling cutter has a perfectly spherical form, it also offers all of the plus points of a robust ball nose end mill.
As such, FRAISAs innovative ArCut X tool concept integrates great finishing performance with almost perfect surface qualities and is therefore an exceedingly interesting tool concept for flat component surfaces.
The advantages of the ArCut X cutter compared with conventional ball nose end mills are enormous:
- A very much larger step-over distance is possible
- Undesirable step effects are avoided
- The short tool results in high stability and less vibration
- Time savings of up to 90% compared with ball nose end milling
