VC tool series: AVANTEC`s new all-round face milling tools
The success key of Avantec`s new VC tool series and its high efficiency lies in its multitooth capacity. The tool body is designed to work with a maximum of cutting edges, and the great stability level of the inserts is able to meet best quality performing requirements. The positive interaction of the 8-edge Ofensiva inserts results in very high volume and feed rates and guarantees the suitability of the Avantop VC series in both rough and finish processes. Typical for Avantec`s tool is their extreme smoothness, which allows a vibration-free operation and the use of the cutters even in low-performance machines.
The continuous development of the Ofensiva inserts has significantly contributes to this huge success. The new AVANTEC grades IceČ and NeroČ, designed respectively for the steel and cast iron machining, are used for the fabrication of these inserts. The new carbide and coating, combined with an optimizes cutting geometry, are responsible for the achievement of up to a 40% higher cutting speed and a longer tool life. This makes of the new Avantop VC1.1 and the Avantop VC2.2 also the ideal face milling tools for processing difficult materials and all kinds of cast iron.
