IMCO LAUNCHES M213 STREAKERS FOR AGGRESSIVE,
HIGH-PERFORMANCE MACHINING IN ALUMINUM ALLOYS
End mill radii conform to aerospace specifications.
Perrysburg, Ohio, USA – May 10-,2021 – IMCO Carbide Tool Inc. has launched a new series – M213 STREAKERS – designed to handle extreme tool paths in aluminum alloys, provide superior surface finishes and meet the demands of today’s aerospace industry.
M213 STREAKERS feature three extremely large flute cavities, uniquely designed end face and gashing, and 37-degree helixes to achieve deep cuts and high feed rates. IMCO’s special end face and flute grinds combine to create a free cutting action allowing aggressive plunging and ramping moves.
“Milling in aluminum has unique challenges, especially for aerospace parts,” said Matt Osburn, Vice President, Technical Director for IMCO. “So we’ve focused our advanced technologies on making customers’ work easier and faster with end mills specially designed for milling deep slots, running steep ramp angles with high feed rates on entry moves, and plunging at high feed rates without a peck cycle, and providing a superior surface finish as part of the package.”
Like all IMCO high-performance end mills, M213 STREAKERS also feature improved corner strength for longer tool life. Micro-fine cutting edges slice cleanly through work material, and high-polish flute faces keep chips moving out of the cutting zone. M213 STREAKERS are available uncoated with square, corner radius and ball nose ends, as well as chip management system (CMS) and neck relief options.
IMCO’s online ToolBot is available 24/7 to generate fast, easy and customizable cutting parameters. Just answer the prompts and get your results, customized for your machining task and machine.
“As with all IMCO advanced technology, ToolBot helps give our customers the edge in a competitive industry to achieve higher productivity and profitability,” Osburn said. “That’s what we do best.”
