High-technology lollipop cutters are designed for multiple applications
Our Eliminator conical barrel tools are revolutionising finishing and semi-finishing strategies on a wide range of components from motor racing to mould and die, and aerospace to medical, including turbine blades and blisks.
Highly efficient at finishing and semi-finishing the conical geometry is ideal for profiling flanks, steep walls, flat planes and faces with minimal curvature.
In terms of cycle times, the increased ap (step down) and reduced tool path distances can save you up to 90% on machining times.
Smaller cusp (scallop) heights lead to a low Ra finish and reduced effects of thermal deformation (heat transfer) give you longer tool life.
Like its conical cousin our tangential barrel tool is designed to replace scanning with a ball nose or corner radius end mill. Cutting on the flank allows speeds to be maintained over the feature.
The tangential geometry provides what is effectively a two-in-one tool, giving you both side and ball nose cutting. Finishing and semi-finishing performance is excellent as are flank profiling operations and machining steep walls, flat planes and faces with minimal curvature.
With the correct CAM cycles tangential barrel tools are capable of optimised tool paths and strategies, accessing areas the conical cannot.
