Why? The innovatived Double Octomill have inserts that are positioned in
the pockets by HSS pins. This makes indexing easy and secure. You simply can’t go wrong because the insert is correctly located by the HSS pins. What’s more, the HSS pins ensure an extremely long life for the pocket (65 HRC).
Same tool for roughing and finishing.
Cutter body gives long tool life
High performance insert
Five different geometries
Three different pitches
Tools in the Double Octomill range are divided into three different pitches: Normal, Normal+, and Close pitch, providing optimum productivity for different machines and materials.
For example, if the machine has high power capability, choose the close pitch cutter (cast iron). If the machine has limited power capability, choose normal or normal+ (all materials). On the normal and normal+ versions, the insert is locked in place by a centre lock mounting, with a strong screw. The close pitch version has wedge mounting using a new, stronger and self-orientating wedge. Both insert locking solutions gives you easy handling and maximum security during the cutting process.
DOUBLE OCTOMILL HIGH FEED
INCREASE YOUR ROUGHING SPEEDS
Designed to maximise metal removal rates in steel and cast iron applications, the new Double Octomill High Feed enables large increases in productivity. The new high feed face milling cutter is available in diameters from 80 – 160 mm and offers the most benefit in applications featuring large parts. All Double Octomill high feed cutters use a unique pocket design and ground slots on the inserts to achieve maximum precision.
WHAT IS HIGH FEED MILLING?
This process pairs a shallow depth of cut with high feed per tooth, which provides higher metal removal rates and results in more parts being machined. Cutting forces are directed to the machine spindle in the axial direction, which increases stability, reduces vibrations and extends tool life.
DOUBLE OCTOMILL -05
But now we’ve gone one better and created Double Octomill 05. Intended for smaller jobs, Double Octomill 05 still has all the benefits of its big brother but is designed to be used in smaller machines.
Inserts for Double Octomill 05 are available in four geometries for a wide range of materials, from cast iron to more exotic materials.
