Aluminium profile aviation

Description

The customer is looking for a solution to produce bores on an aluminium profile in one operation.

Application details

Application details

  • Bore: Ø11.0mm
  • Bore depth: 2mm
  • Material: aluminium

Proposed solution

Proposed solution

The solution from HEULE is the VEX tool (with internal coolant and bore depth 1xd). The drill bit has been coated with DLC for use in aluminium. The blade for the deburring operation is from the proven SNAP series (with DLC coating, cutting front and back).

Machining parameters:
Working speed: 5000 rev/min
Working feed: 0.1 mm/rev
Cooling: internal cooling

Customer benefit

Customer benefit

So far, the shavings have been wrapped around the tool and the bores had to be deburred by a separate operation.
With the VEX-S and the correct cutting data it is also possible to machine thin aluminium profiles without the issue that the material twists itself and without the risk that shavings have a negative influence on the process.
