Indexable cutter line
Heli3Mill family of indexable cutters includes the HM390 TPKT 0502PDR 5mm (0.197") edge triangular insert. Designed for rough milling of compact parts, small-size cavities, and pockets at high feed rates, Heli3Mill is applicable to medical parts manufacturing and a solution for low-power machining centers and turn-mill machine tools.
The cutter features 90° cutting-edge angle, advanced cutting geometry that reduces cutting forces for smooth cutting, ramping-down ability, coolant holes directed to each cutting edge, and a protective-polished coating on the cutter body for uninterrupted chip flow and corrosion- and wear-protection.

Magazine-style automatic bar feeder
The Ranger 112 magazine-style automatic bar feeder is for round, square, and hexagonal bar stock in lengths up to 12ft 5" and diameters of 1.5mm to 15mm.
Equipped with a Mitsubishi controller and belt drive, it features dual anti-vibration devices stabilizing bar stock – one internal to the bar feeder, the other mounted between the telescopic nose and the lathe headstock – maximizing revolution per minute potential. Polyurethane guide channels increase strength and stability.
Dual-curing biocompatible epoxy
The UV22DC80-1Med single component, nanosilica-filled compound features a UV- and heat-curing mechanism, passes USP Class VI tests for biocompatibility, and meets ISO 10993-5 for cytotoxicity. It offers low shrinkage upon cure, excellent abrasion resistance, and dimensional stability with a 30" to 35" x 10-6°C coefficient of thermal expansion. It is a reliable electrical insulator with volume resistivity of more than 1014ohm-cm and dielectric constant of 3.85 at 60Hz. UV22DC80-1Med is optically clear with a refractive index of 1.52.
UV curing for UV22DC80-1Med takes 10 seconds to 30 seconds at a 365nm wavelength and 10mW/cm2 to 40mW/cm2 of UV output. Heat curing can be initiated at 80°C. Optional post curing at 125°C to 150°C for 15 minutes to 30 minutes will increase the glass transition temperature above 125°C.
The epoxy has a 500cps to 3,500cps viscosity at 75°F (~23°C), bonds well to a range of substrates, and has good resistance to various sterilization methods.
