Safe-Lock™: Roughing application in the packing machine industry
- Only Weldon holders could be used
- High tool wear on one flute (Tool breakout on the opposite side of the Weldon flat)
=> Target: Increase of tool life by usage of high precision tool holding instead of Weldon.
- Increase of tool life by usage of high precision tool holding instead of Weldon
Application: Contour milling
|Cutting tool:||HPC solid carbide cutter with variable flutes Ø = 20 mm, Z=4|
|Cutting depth:||axial (ap) =0.75xD, radial (ae) =10 mm|
|Cutting speed (vc):||180 m/min|
|Feed rate/flute (fz):||0.07 mm|
This comparison shows the wear characteristics of the cutting tools at various machining times. Of note is that, in the case of Safe-LockTM, even at double the machining time, wear is less prevalent and more
controlled than for Weldon - with 100% protection against pullout.
