Epoch Combination Rib Ball ECRB-PN
A new processing method to change the common practice of rib grooving.
From discharge machining to cutting machining.
Features & Applications
Direct cutting using a new machining method
By using various combinations from the small lineup of Epoch Combination Rib Balls. a variety of rib sizes can be handled. enabling machining of rib grooves with good release. Cutting machining can replace discharge machining in the région conventionally performed by discharge machining.
Reciprocating cutting with high accuracy
The shape of the tool used for machining rib grooves by reciprocating cutting is transferred directly.
Machining can be performed with high accuracy without tool deflection. etc.
Optimum flûte shape for high performance
Uses a spécial flûte shape optimized for reciprocating cutting. Feed rate and cutting depth can be increased for high-performance machining.
Combination of PN coating and optimum base material provides long tool life.
Uses PN coating with excellent adhesion and wear résistance and an optimum Carbide base material to provide outstanding cutting life.
Applicable reinforcement rib groove shapes
Enables machining of rib grooves with defined top surface widths and bottom widths on plastic molds. The following 3 sizes of rib grooves can be machined with high accuracy by reciprocating machining.
