The mould and die industry supports many industries ranging from automotive, electricity, semiconductors, consumer goods, through to machinery, equipment and the parts.
The mould and tool making industry imposes very high demands on cutting tools with workpiece materials with difficult properties such as high hardness and frequent work hardening. To meet these exacting requirements, Cutwel has released a comprehensive range of tools for roughing, medium cutting and finishing.
The Cutwel cutting tool range covers almost any conceivable application, geometry, material hardness or size, from roughing to finishing and the most precise tolerances. Combined with our range of high precision tool holders from Dinox, we have the complete machining solutions for mould, die and tool makers.
View our tooling below for various mould, die and toolmaking types:
High Speed Machining of Steels & Pre-hardened Steels <HRc55
The YG-1 4G Mill range has the widest choice of choice in milling cutters for the mould and tool industry with diameters from 0.1mm and multiple tool lengths for every diameter.
All 4G Mills are precision ground to extremely tight tolerances and the extreme choice of tool lengths ensures the most suitable tool length is always used.
High Speed Machining of Steels & Pre-hardened Steels <HRc70
The YG-1 X5070 Blue coated nanograin carbide is the market leading milling range for mould and die, suitable for high speed machining up to HRc70.
The nanograin substrate combined with silicon based coating means that X5070 can machine the hardest of materials at the highest speeds without the risk of tool
Button Insert Indexable Milling
The Korloy FMR positive features an 11o positive relief angle which ensures high rigidity and low cutting resistance in die and tool steel machining.
The special octagon design of the insert pocket guarantees 8 indexes of the insert and prevents the insert from rotating within the tool pocket. The insert pockets are unevenly placed which reduces vibration in high feed milling.
Multifunctional Finishing System 8-32mm Diameter
The Korloy Laser Mill is a leader in replaceable insert milling systems for the mould and die industry. The unique design of the insert delivers coolant directly to the cutting edge ensuring the very best tool life, surface finish and reliability. The range of holders includes carbide shank holders for the highest rigidity in long reach applications.
High Feed Indexable End Mill
The Korloy HRM Double HIGH FEED MILL is ideal for mould, die and tool making applications where performance machining is required. Using a small depth of cut (<2mm) and high feed per tool (1.0-3.5mm per tooth), metal removal rates are maximised with the lowest of power requirements.
Indexable ball end mill for medium to roughing applications
The Korloy GBE Mill is ideal for medium to roughing copy milling applications from 16mm-50mm diameter. The holders are available in end mill style, porcupine style or screwed shank style for deep pocket milling.
Rich Mill RM3
Multifunctional Milling System
The Korloy RM3P milling system has a unique insert geometry that achieves unbelievable surface finish, surface roughness, flatness and perpendicularity in 90 degree milling. The high rake chip breaker has ultra low cutting resistance, even in harder materials.
Indexable ball endmill for roughing applications
The Korloy BRE Mill is first choice for roughing copy milling applications from 20mm-50mm diameter. The holders are available in end mill style or porcupine style.
RM4Z PLUNGE MILL
Z Axis Plunge Milling System for Roughing
The Korloy RM4Z Plunge Mill system uses the Z Axis for roughing applications, ideal for moulds where a largeamount of metal needs removing.
RM4Z can be also used for facing, slotting, helical cutting, shoulder milling and drilling* (*depth restrictions apply).
Indexable end mill for all milling applications as well as Z axis plunge milling and drilling
The Korloy Have Mill system uses the Z Axis for roughing applications, ideal for moulds where a large amount of metal needs removing.
Have Mill can be also used for facing, slotting, helical cutting, shoulder milling, ramping and drilling.
Indexable Drilling System
The Korloy King Drill is a leading indexable drilling system due to its precise performance and high reliability. Unlike other u-drill style systems, the King Drill produces extremely straight and consistent diameter holes from the start to the end of the hole.
High Performance Solid Carbide Drills
The YG-1 Dream Drill range is ideal for tool and mould making applications where high precision drilling is required. Drills are available with or without through coolant and are ground to an m7 tolerance.
The DH500 series is also ideal for application where EDM is usually used due to the material hardness. It is suitable for machining from 50-70HRc.
DINOX TOOL HOLDERS
High Performance Spindle Tooling
Precise applications require both precise tools and precise holders. The Dinox range of tool holders offer different solutions for roughing, finishing or specific applications such as long reach or small pocket machining.
The Dinox tool holder range is manufactured by Korea’s leading high end tool holder manufacturer Dine.
High Performance Solid Carbide Drill with replaceable head
The YG-1 I-Dream Drill uses the same carbide substrate and geometry as the Dream Drill range, for performance machining of larger diameter holes.
The YG-1 I-Dream Drill range is ideal for tool and mould making applications where high precision drilling is required above 12mm diameter.
For Screwed Shank End Mills
To support Korloy’s range of screwed shank milling heads, a range of straight shank modular adaptors is available.
Korloy modular adaptors can be used with other manufacturers milling heads.
3D PRINTING & RAPID PROTOTYPING
