Description

A manufacturer of wind rotors in China was looking for a more efficient and stable solution for the application of back spot faces to bores.

Application details

Application details

  • Main bore: Ø14.0 mm
  • Counterbore diameter: Ø22.0 mm
  • Material: GG40
  • Machining: Horizontally with internal coolant
  • Machine: Gantry Boring and Milling Machine Center

Proposed solution

Proposed solution

HEULE recommended the BSF tool with a working length of 80 mm, together with a TiAlN coated carbide blade type BSF-M-E-1A-5.0.

Machining parameters:

  • Speed: N=500 rev/min
  • Feed: F=20 mm/min
  • Coolant: Internal coolant

Customer benefits

Customer benefits

By choosing a new, more stable tool the customer reaches a better process capability. Furthermore, the better stability leads to an improved tool life of the blade.

Customer satisfaction

Customer satisfaction

The customer is very happy with the new solution. The old tool (see image) - in contrast to the new BSF - needed preadjustments. This has left room for handling mistakes and has an influence on the saftey of the process.
