YG-1 Expands ALU-POWER HPC End Mill Line with New Chip Breaker Style in Inch Sizes
/ June 08, 2021
Excellent Chip Evacuation and Lower Power Consumption in High Speed Roughing of Aluminum
According to a market research report in 2019, the global Aluminum market size was estimated at over USD 150 billion. This market is forecasted to grow at over 5.0% per year between 2020 and 2027 due to extensive application in transport, construction, electrical & electronics, packaging, equipment & machinery, consumer durables, with the demand for lighter weight components which reduce energy consumption.
To meet the growing demand, precision manufacturers manufacturing Aluminum parts want to machine the parts as fast as possible. Since its introduction a few years ago, YG-1’s ALU-POWER HPC Solid End Mills have delivered on this challenge. The unique geometry and design of this tool provide balanced cutting with less vibration during high-speed machining of Aluminum.
Now, building on the success of the ALU-POWER HPC line, YG-1 announces a new solution: ALU-POWER HPC CHIP BREAKER 3-FLUTE END MILLS, now available as standard stocked inch sizes.
The new ALU-POWER HPC Chip Breaker tools provide long tool life and high productivity on Aluminum roughing operations through the use of a new Chip Breaker geometry. This feature reduces load on the part and the machine by breaking the chips into smaller chips to eliminate recutting long chips and improving chip evacuation.
The new solution is available in over 100 stocks in inch sizes, from 1/8” – 1” diameter, in regular and extended lengths with precision round h6 shanks. To accommodate different types of non-ferrous materials, ALU-POWER HPC is available in uncoated, as well as YG-1’s DLC coating which provides longer tool life when machining more abrasive aluminums. The standard stock portfolio features square and corner radius styles in standard and neck-down configurations.
