Guhring Hits the Spot With new Mould and Die Range

posted 16th January 2024 by Lisa Bigge

The new range, which can be seen in the new Mould and Die Catalogue, presents a wealth of new product lines that include the latest milling, drilling, threading, reaming and countersinking innovations with the new G-Mold milling line for mould making already proving to be an extremely popular range. The new G-Mold milling series has been developed to maximise tool life when machining materials up to 65HRc. With the new Guhring Signum and Perrox coating technologies and the ultra-hard carbide substrate, the G-Mold demonstrates unprecedented levels of performance with long-lasting cutting-edge performance and impeccable levels of surface finish. The extended tool life and performance are further enhanced by the Guhrojet peripheral cooling system that delivers through tool coolant or compressed air to remove swarf while keeping the cutter body structurally sound and improving process reliability.

The G-Mold series is available with ball nose, torus, finishers, radius finisher, universal and high-feed variants that all incorporate micron precision radius accuracy. Three prominent new arrivals include the new 55 and 65 G-Mold Series ball nose tools and the high feed range.

The new G-Mold 65B series of high-precision 2 and 4-flute ball nose cutters for machining up to 65HRc incorporate a radius contour tolerance of ±0.005 mm to ensure component contour accuracy and repeatability, with a centre cutting geometry, 25 degree flute and neck clearance for extended reach applications. Available in diameters from 0.2 to 12mm with a reach from 9 to 75mm depending upon the variant selected, the G-Mold 65B is suitable for hard materials, cast iron and steel machining where optimum performance, tool life and surface finishes are a necessity.

Alongside the G-Mold 65B series in the catalogue, is the new G-Mold 55B series. More of an allrounder, the G-Mold 55B is suitable for machining steel, stainless steel, cast iron, super-alloys and hard materials up to 55HRc. Like the G-Mold 65B, the G-Mold 55B is available from 0.5 to 12mm diameter with neck clearance and a centre cutting geometry.

For mould tool companies that demand the epitome of high-performance cutting, the G-Mold 65 HF high-feed series has been developed for high-feed roughing with low depths of cut and maximum feed rates to optimise metal removal rate. Presented in diameters from 1 to 16mm, the G-Mold 65 HF high-feed series incorporates Guhring’s Guhrojet peripheral cooling from 1 to 3mm diameter with central through coolant for 4mm diameter and above. With a corner radius and optimised tool geometry, the 4-flute end mills can perform high-feed rates on all material types.

Toolmaker Dives into Cost Savings with Guhring

posted 16th January 2024 by Lisa Bigge

As a family-run business, Canterbury Tools Ltd has been involved in the design and manufacture of press tools since it was established almost 50 years ago. To optimise the production of specialist press tools, the subcontract manufacturer utilises wire machine tools and cutting tools supplied by Birmingham-based Guhring.  Switching to Guhring tooling has given Canterbury much higher material removal rate resulting in jobs on machines for less time, giving them longer tool life which has reduced the downtime incurred by tool changeovers and as a result tooling costs have been dramatically reduced.

The new micro-precision milling range is a universal tool that is perfect for every material and every application. Providing plunging and milling in a single tool, the new RF100 Micro Diver permits extreme cutting values with very highly cutting depths that until now, were beyond the realms of micro-precision cutting tools. Available in two variants, the 6808 and 6809, the RF100 Micro Diver features a symmetrical drilling face for stability when ramping and drilling, a new transition geometry to improve rigidity and an innovative flute form that further enhances rigidity and eliminates vibration.
