Catalog - DIXI4 - Precision Solid Carbide Tools
Micrograin Carbide

The constant improvement of the powder metallurgy process now gives the possibility to obtain micro fine grain particles smaller than 1 micron.

For small size tools, because of the micrograin carbide characteristics, the machining capability is much more superior than the previous grades offered. This means that we can now offer a better service than before, i.e. delivery and quality, since it is no longer necessary to use different grades such as (K 10, P 25). DIXI 4 micrograin end mills offer high performance machining of most materials.

A complete range of monobloc tungsten tools for milling complex shapes

With the XIDUR® special multi layer black coated intended for the machining of hard and heat treated steels (HRC30 - 60) complex milling shape and also capable of milling ferrous materials at high speed (HSC) gives the extra endurance and durability.

DIXI 7070 HF XIDUR® - Multiteeth corner radius end mills for milling complex shapes

The geometry has been optimized for roughing and semi-finishing operations. The cutters have been designed to machine various materials used by mould makers (steels and cast irons of hardness 30 to 55 HRC).
In opposition to ball nose cutters, corner radius cutters guarantee a nearly constant cutting speed on the complete radius. Therefore phenomenon of wear are reduced and the tools can remove very significant chip volumes.

The advantages of this DIXI 7070 HF:

  • Very tough carbide micro grain
  • XIDUR® coating for increased tool life
  • Exceptional rigidity thanks to a thinning behind the cutting length. This characteristic makes it possible to reconcile the significant depth of machining under very high cutting conditions 45 helix angle softening the penetration of the teeth into the material and thus reducing the vibration phenomena
  • The number of teeth of the cutters is a function of the tool diameter
  • Vast diversity of diameter and corner radius in the standard range

Until nowadays high speed milling of stainless steel was limited to finishing operations only. By developing the new DIXI 7543 HF XIDUR® coated end mill, allowing slight roughing operations (ap<0.25xD, ae<1D), DIXI contributes to widening the solutions of high speed machining for these kind of materials. For the development of this cutter, DIXI based its research on stainless steels of type 303, 316L and 403F. Those are the most widely encountered stainless steels in the mechanical engineering industry.
