Angle Cutters Information
Angle cutters are milling cutters with the cutting face angled with respect to the axis of rotation. There are many types of angle cutters. Examples include single angle cutters and double angle cutters. Single angle cutters are those which have teeth on the conical or angular face of the cutter and also on the large flat side. A double angle cutter has V- shaped teeth with both conical surfaces at an angle to their end faces. Milling cutters are rotating cutters used in machine applications. Angle iron cutters are cutting tools used for cutting various kinds of metals. Other angle cutters are commonly available.
Angle cutters are available with various angles ranging from 10° to 45°. The specifications of an angle iron cutter include the angle, diameter, and weight. Angle cutters include a 45° lead angle roughing cutter, 30° lead angle cutter, 30° lead angle roughing cutter, and 30° lead angle finishing and semi-finishing cutters. These angle cutters use 2-sided hexagonal inserts with 12 true cutting edges. Double negative geometry provides strength needed for high metal removal rates. Their diameters range from 3-12 in. and 80-315 mm. A milling cutter is also available in diameters from 3 inches to 12 inches and 80 mm to 315 mm metric diameters. The 45° lead angle cutter is the first choice for roughing operations because of its high strength while the 30° lead angle roughing cutter offers an alternative for reducing breakout and also accepts wiper inserts. Angle iron cutters have special blades that have a 1\8 inch thick angle. Angle cutters are designed and manufactured to meet most industry specifications.
Angle cutters are used in many applications. Examples include their use in drilling aluminum and its alloys. Angle cutters have many advantages in production applications. Angle iron cutters have are utilized in making bridges and reducing high pressure of iron towers. Angle cutters should adhere to American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards.
