Tungaloy Expands TungMeister Interchangeable Milling Head System with 4-Flute High Feed Heads
Iwaki, April 2019 — Tungaloy expands its TungMeister series of interchangeable milling head system, to include 4-flute cutter heads with high feed capability.
The interchangeable TungMeister heads allow a quick, easy, and accurate tool change between various operations. Now the system incorporates a 4-flute option of the VFX-4 style cutting heads for elevated feed capability.
High feed milling technique is common for many manufacturers who are seeking efficient metal removal. To meet the increasing market demands for higher milling efficiency, TungMeister now offers a 4-flute high feed head in addition to the existing 2-flute head. An increased flute count allows higher parameters as well as prolonged tool life because the same working load is produced by having more cutting edges engaged in the cut. Soft cutting and strong geometry also improve tool life and stability thanks to its helical cutting edge and larger tool core.
