ATI Stellram has introduced the 5230VS12 chevron cutter, capable of both slotting and profiling, is designed for high material-removal rates in titanium and difficult-to-machine alloys.

Tests by ATI Stellram have shown metal-removal rates of up to two times greater than those of comparable cutters on the market.

The tool’s chevron design ensures that one cutting point is always in contact with the material during entrance and exit, providing optimum harmonic stability and resulting in maximum tool life and a 30 per cent improvement in surface finish.

A generous flute capacity, coupled with each individual cutting edge having its own jet of coolant, provides for excellent chip evacuation.

This works to further enhance surface finish and increase metal-removal rates to a higher level of productivity.
