Expansion in indexable insert reaming


Indexable insert technology has revolutionised reaming with multiple cutting edge reamers and has set new standards for precision and functionality. KOMET®  is therefore introducing the  KOMET  REAMAX®  TS Duo to extend the range of these tools to be compatible with diameters ranging from 42 to 70 mm. The range of solid carbide reaming tools has also been extended: The  KOMET®  Fullmax "Champions" with the designations P, S, M, K, N and H are adapted to specific materials and offer a significant increase in performance compared to the universal reamer.

With the Duomax cutting ring,  KOMET®  is providing a modular indexable insert tool system with multiple cutting edges for reaming basic holes and through-holes, available in diameters ranging from 62 to 110 mm. The Duomax cutting ring, fitted on a holder, can be replaced easily and also offers the advantage that each indexable insert has two usable cutting edges.

At EMO 2015,  KOMET®   is presenting another indexable insert reaming system in the form of the  REAMAX®  TS Duo, with the result that the Duomax cutting rings now cover an extended range of diameters from 42 to 70 mm. It uses the interface of the  KOMET  REAMAX®  TS, which has been established as a replaceable head system with soldered-on carbide inserts for years. As a result of the fast, highly accurate tool head change that can advantageously be carried out from the side when the tool is located in the machine, it provides maximum levels of flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

While the "conventional"  KOMET  REAMAX®  TS reaming heads cannot be resharpened, the  KOMET  REAMAX®  TS Duo can be re-tipped again and again, as can the Duomax cutting rings. The indexable inserts each offered in the set are the same as for the Duomax cutting rings. They are available in a selection of different cutting materials and coatings (for example cermet, DST, TiN, etc.).

The  KOMET  REAMAX® TS Duo is available in a fixed and adjustable version. Users can enlarge the diameter using an adjustment screw positioned at the front in order to compensate for very slight levels of wear and adjust the tool precisely to the smallest tolerances from IT4.

Increase in performance with Fullmax reamers

KOMET®  is also presenting a new product for solid carbide reaming: In addition to the versatile Fullmax universal reamer, which is available ex stock in the main dimensions and with a tolerance of H7 as well as in dimensions of 1/100 mm, what are known as "Champions" are now also available. They also bear the ISO designations for the material to be machined, i.e. P for steel, S for special alloys, M for stainless steels, K for cast iron, N for soft metals and H for hardened steels. They are characterised by a geometry and coating that are both optimised, as a result of which they provide a performance that is up to 30% greater in mass production.
