Ceratizit UK & Ireland has published the latest of its Special Selections catalogues, with almost 100 pages featuring the latest in cutting tool, workholding and technical support information.
While the list of new innovations is long, the key products in the new catalogue are the brand new exchangeable head boring system and the KUB Pentron CS drilling system, both of which offer significant advantages over existing equipment.
In combination with vibration-damped boring bars the new exchangeable head system users are finding that in in applications with extended overhangs customers are able to increase cutting data rather than reduce it to overcome vibrations, achieving reduced cycle times, while also generating improved surface finish and improved tool life. Standard versions of the base holders are available from CERATIZIT in 200, 218 and 283 mm lengths and diameters of 25, 32 and 40 mm, with the vibration-damped versions available in 150, 185 and 225 mm lengths. Their strengths include process security, reduced costs per component, optimum chip clearance and improved surfaces – and the full benefits can be seen irrespective of the materials to be machined.
While the KOMET KUB Pentron CS indexable insert drill provides a single operation, process-secure and high-performance drilling solution for bores up to 96 mm diameter with a diameter to length ratio of 3xD. To meet a growing customer demand for this range of hole sizes the KUB Pentron CS is now part of the Ceratizit standard range and available from stock for next day delivery.
The KUB Pentron CS system is modular in design making it suitable for universal use and for many special applications. The drills consist of a burnished, wear-resistant KUB Pentron CS base holder manufactured to the exacting standards customers are accustomed to from the Komet brand. This features the proven Komet ABS system for the coupling, as it offers significant advantages compared to other interfaces, such as the cylindrical shank, especially for large holes. These advantages include a higher clamping force and torsional stiffness, as well as better values with regard to force transmission, accuracy and machining performance. Two, high-precision cartridge seats are located in the base body, with the inner cartridge able to cover a specific diameter range, with the outer cartridge determining the bore diameter.
Also highlighted in the Special Selections catalogue is CERATIZIT’s new LiveTechPro App. While we continue to function in extraordinary times, with face-face contact limited the innovative LiveTechPro App provides immediate and competent visual support to deliver technical assistance in case of machining issues or, simply to help optimise processes. It features a live, bidirectional video and audio connection between the customer’s machine operator/production engineer and the technical support team from Ceratizit. While CERATIZIT has built its success on direct technical support this technology means its Technical Sales and Applications engineers don’t have to be there, to be there.
