The specialists for Impellers and Turbine Blades

FRANKEN, the pioneer in circle segment end mills, completes the milling program for the machining of impeller and turbine blades with new roughing and finishing tools with internal cooling.

Rueckersdorf, Germany, September 18, 2017 | The milling program FRANKEN Turbine comprises solid carbide tools for roughing and finishing components on turbines or other complex 5-axis components. The two new tapered Turbine torus end mills complement the previous milling program with a further design, which includes internal coolant-lubricant supply. This enables a better chip removal and thus improves the process reliability and tool life. With their roughing geometry and variable spacing they are ideally suited for low-vibration pre-milling of impellers, turbine blades and Integrated Bladed Rotors (IBR).

The new versions of the circle segment end mills in oval form with corner radius "ER" also offer internal coolant-lubricant supply and are available with roughing and finishing geometry. The roughing design makes it possible to produce a constant machining allowance even for complex components for the subsequent finishing operation with a further circle segment end mill, thus saving the pre-finishing process. This new combination of roughing with pre-finishing and subsequent finishing enables time savings in milling of up to 50%. At the same time, significant improvements in surface quality are achieved, which, for example, avoid complex rework by removal of machining transition areas and significantly improve dimensional and contour accuracy.

The cutting material, the geometry as wells as the coating of all end mills are geared towards machining diffcult to cut materials such as titanium alloys or Inconel. The Turbine and Expert end mills are also available in customer-specific dimensions.

For nearly 100 years, the German company group EMUGE-FRANKEN has been one of the world`s leading manufacturers of precision tools for thread cutting, gauging, clamping and milling. With 1,800 employees, EMUGE-FRANKEN offers an innovative product program with 40,000 in-stock items and a multiple of that with customer-specific tools. The product range is focused on applications in the automotive industry, power plants, aerospace industry, medical technology as well as mechanical and plant engineering. As a system supplier for machining industry, EMUGE-FRANKEN has own branch offices or sales partners in 49 countries.
