DatumPoint Introduces the RADICATOR, An Inserted Carbide Back Draft Style Milling Cutter

TROY, MICHIGAN – Datum Point Tool, Inc. of Troy, Michigan, introduces the RadicatorTM, an inserted carbide back draft milling cutter. The patent-pending design of the new Radicator insert has moved the actual cutting edges closer to the center compared to competitive designs, allowing a much freer cut. The massive size of the insert promotes improved heat dissipation. Applications include semi-rough, semi-finish and profile milling, along with a variety of other uses.

The 1" diameter tool holder is available in six-, eight-, ten- and twelve-inch lengths. Two types of inserts are offered including a double-sided version for profile work or tapered walls. A single-sided insert can be used for cutting straight walls.

The new Radicator inserts are offered with corner radii of 1/32, 1/16, 3/32, 1/8, 5/32, 3/16, 7/32 and 1/4. All inserts - both TIALN coated or uncoated - are conveniently available off the shelf. Other diameters are anticipated for release in 2003.

The Radicator features the latest micrograin technology to improve quality and increased tool life dramatically.

Jumbo Series Carbide Corner Rounding Tool Added to RADSTAR® Line

TROY, MICHIGAN – In response to customer requests, Datum Point Tool, Inc. of Troy, Michigan, has expanded its RADSTAR® line to include a jumbo series of carbide corner rounding tools. The RADSTAR tool requires only one insert featuring two cutting edges. Four different size radii are available in the jumbo series including 7/16", 1/2", 9/16" and 5/8". The new series augments RADSTAR's mini series (range from .010" to .025") and mid series (range from 1/32" to 3/8", at 1/32" increments) inserts. The two-flute single insert milling cutter uses the latest micro-grain carbide technology. It handles the extremely high-speed milling encountered on CNC machines or the slower speeds on Bridgeports.
