Komet Group Over 1000 new tools for successful machining
The KOMET GROUP was showcasing a wide range of innovations under the slogan "THE CUTTING EDGE – Solutions for the best performance".
The highlight was the extended range of indexable insert milling cutters, accompanied by many new diamond indexable inserts and new tools from the fields of drilling, reaming and threading. Over 1000 additional precision tools have been added to the KOMET® product range.
In addition to its well-known innovative tools for high-precision drilling, reaming and threading, the KOMET GROUP now boasts a wide range of high-performance milling cutters. Alongside the well-established KOMET® Quatron hi.feed, KOMET® hi.aeQ and KOMET® hi.apQ milling cutter lines, six more indexable insert milling cutter systems (four single-sided and two double-sided indexable inserts) are now available ex stock.
Some examples:The new KOMET® milling cutters include the KOMET® Q55-KCM (KOMET® copy-milling) copy miller that is particularly suitable for machining turbine blades, but can also be used very universally. The 45° KOMET® Q63-KFM (KOMET® face-milling) face milling cutter is also part of the new product range. It is designed for face-milling operations with a cutting depth of up to 6.5 mm and a tooth feed of up to 0.5 mm. The KOMET® Q56-KHF (KOMET® high-feed) face-milling cutter is a particularly efficient tool. It was designed for high-feed applications and achieves a very high chip volume per unit of time. Its angled cutting edge also achieves optimum surface quality. The KOMET® Q43-KSM (KOMET® shoulder-milling) shoulder milling cutter produces shoulders that are step-free and are exactly 90° as a result of its soft-cutting geometry.
With over 70 indexable inserts featuring different topographies, substrates and coatings, which can be combined with 60 different basic body designs, KOMET® now has a full and varied product range, ideal for handling all milling tasks, from face, shoulder and chamfer milling to straight, 45° and T-slot milling, circular and plunge milling, angled plunge milling and free-form milling.
The range of ISO indexable inserts with diamond cutting edges has also experienced huge growth and has been extended to more than 900 items. In addition to KOMET® PCD products, CVD thick film diamond-tipped inserts can now also be supplied. All variants are manufactured using the latest production technology, such as laser machining and high-vacuum soldering, which results in high-quality cutting edges and variable geometries as well as improved cutting results and longer tool life.
Indexable insert reaming for small diameters
Indexable insert technology has revolutionised reaming with multi-blade reamers and has set new standards for precision and functionality. KOMET® therefore introduced the KOMET REAMAX® TS Duo to extend the range of these tools to be compatible with smaller diameters of down to 42 mm. The range of solid carbide reaming tools has also been extended: The KOMET® Fullmax "Champions" with the ISO designations P, S, M, K, N and H are adapted to specific materials and offer a significant increase in performance compared to the universal reamer.
