There are three reasons for long tool life of the Cutter;
(1)it can maintain minimum cutting amount,
(2)the contact point of the spherical cutting edge is continuously shifting, and
(3)the Cutter is specially designed for deburring with high-quality material and coating.
The tool life depends on stiffness of workpiece or jig, machining accuracy, and burr size. According to the internal test, the Cutter lasts couple times longer than general carbide end mill.
No, we do not deal with cutting service.
No, it is not possible. If you re-grind the Cutter, the Cutter shape will be changed. Then the Cutter would not contact to the hole edge. We do not deal with re-grinding request.
Not only non-ferrous metal such as aluminum alloy, but also difficult-to-cut materials such as stainless steel or alloy steel can be processed.
According to our internal test, the Cutter could process aluminum alloy without creating build-up edge.
We haven’t performed any test with high hardness material.
Yes, but it depends on hardness of the burr.
If burr root thickness is smaller than the deburring amount, burrs can be removed by the Cutter. We prepare 5 kinds of deburring amount for each cutter diameter. Please refer to How to Use page for details.
We have no specified coolant. You can use coolant for other cutting tools (drilling, end mill etc.)
As same as other cutters, tool life will be extremely shortened for intermittent cutting.
The Cutter is designed for deburring purpose, so that it cannot be used for high-precision processing.
Yes, you can purchase the Cutter from 1 unit.
The Cutter can be dealt with both flat surface hole and cross-hole, so you can combine each Path.
This is cutting process, so that secondary burrs may be occurred in a precise sense. However, the Cutter has excellent cutting ability, so that any secondary burrs mostly would not occur, unless the Cutter wears out.
Deburring amount will be varied depends on positioning gap of workpiece, or runout of the Cutter. In theory, allowance of deburring amount is within 0.05mm.
Yes, you can buy only the Cutter. But we recommend you to use the Cutter and the Path together, because it will lead maximum effect for cutting quality and tool life.
Yes, please refer to Process Condition page.
If your machine doesn’t satisfy the recommended spindle speed, lower the spindle speed and table feed at an equal rate.
Tool positioning is calculated precisely for uniform deburring amount.
No. There is no expiry date.
No, it is prohibited to use any other kinds of tool besides the XEBEC Cutter, when using the XEBEC Path.
In case of a path by trigonometric function, difference of deburring amount will be up to a few millimeter depending on combination of hole size. In case of a path by CAD/CAM, it will take long time to output a path data, also deburring amount is one kind.
No, you cannot use the Cutter for casting surface because of poor dimensional precision. It may cause burr remaining or tool breakage.
It depends on the level of dimensional precision, but it may cause burr remaining or tool breakage.
Yes, it is possible to adjust coordinates. Make sure to use the incremental path and adjust the start point.
Please use the Path within maximum 0.18mm of cumulative error. Allowable cumulative error for each cutter diameter is described on the Process Condition page. If cumulative error becomes more than allowable cumulative error, it may cause burr remaining or tool breakage.
The Cutter and Path requires high-speed and high-accurate machining. It is recommended to use advanced preview control function.
Standard size is less than 5KB.
In case of cross hole with main bore dia.φ20mm and cross hole dia.φ10mm, the number of program block will be approx. 80 lines, and program capacity is about 2KB. The number of program block can be twice, depending on size combination between primary bore and cross-hole.
It is “.txt” format. You can edit the file by general document software on your PC.
The Path data contains coordinates data (e.g. X, Y, Z coordinates)only. Please add O number, G code, or M code by yourself. In addition, please note that feeding speed command (F code) is not included in our program.
No, it is not possible.
