On Stand F47 in Hall 005, the round tooling experts will be looking to add to its existing network of European distributors whilst introducing the latest innovations that will demonstrate why ITC is a manufacturer of such stature in the UK. With an enviable reputation as a benchmark innovator in the UK’s high-tech aerospace and motorsport industries, ITC will be introducing the latest additions its trochoidal milling range that has been leading the way in the UK for a generation.
Taking just a snapshot of ITC’s extensive trochoidal milling portfolio, the experts at the show will be keen to introduce the company’s 5021 Series of 5-flute end mills that are available with a square-end and now also a complete range of corner radii. This Cupro coated long length end mill with a harmonic flute geometry for improved chip evacuation and extended tool life is available from 3 to 25mm diameter with an overall length from 58 to 150mm and a flute length from 9 to 40mm.
The composition of the 5021 Series makes it the tool of choice for machining steel and exotic materials that inherently increase the temperature and stress on the cutting tool. However, these issues are a thing of the past with the 5021 Series as its harmonic flute geometry and centre cutting action guarantee a consistent chip thickness as well as a constant delivery of torque through the spindle.
Completing the latest line-up of 5-flute innovations is the new 5041 Series that has been introduced to provide manufacturers with extended reach when machining challenging materials.
The new line of 5041 Series of 5-flute tools is the first choice end mill for high-performance machining of steel and exotic material types. The solid carbide end mills are manufactured from a micro-grain carbide substrate with ITC’s Cupro coating technology that dissipates heat, prolongs tool life and consistency; providing a robust platform for high-performance machining of deep pockets and cavities.
However, ITC is not only the UK’s leading manufacturer of trochiodal strategy end-mills, the company is also a renowned expert in the manufacture of ‘micro’ end mills and tools, threading, chamfering, countersinking, reaming, drilling and of course PCD multi-flute routing tools and end mills for the processing of GFRP, carbon fibre, graphite and other challenging heat-resistant materials that are found in light-weighting applications.
