Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) will be making its exhibition debut at this year’s EMO show in Hannover. Recognised as Europe’s leading metalworking exhibition, the event from the 16th to 21st September will be a springboard for the UK cutting tool manufacturer to further enhance its pan-European presence.
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.
Recently making its debut in ITC’s 2019 (Issue 14) product catalogue, and now making its EMO debut will be the new 5031 Series stub length square-end and corner radius 5-flute end mills. Perfectly complementing the longer shank 5021 Series, this Cupro coated end mill builds-upon the already staggering rigidity and success of the existing 5021 Series. The new 5031 Series is available in diameters from 3 to 16mm and its electrifying performance characteristics have been dumbfounding engineers throughout the aerospace, automotive and F1 supply chain.
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.
From the 6-flute trochoidal milling stable, ITC will be giving an EMO exhibition premiere to the impressive new 6051 Series. With the choice of a square-end or multiple corner radii, the long-length centre cutting range has a harmonic fluting design that cuts through steel and exotic materials with staggering ease. This new development is supported by the 6011-F, 6021-F and 6031-F with countless other ranges suitable for trochoidal machining.
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.
