Product highlights from the PCD/PCBN sector
PCD FACE MILLING CUTTER SMART CAP PF 3000 G
Cleanliness-process reliability-wear protection
The SMART CAP PCD milling cutter from Gühring ensures highest productivity and energy efficiency in aluminium processing thanks to its extraordinary technical details. The additive-manufactured Smart Cap solution enables defined chip evacuation, optimised coolant supply and wear protection for the base body.
A barrier-free design enables three-dimensional cooling ducts for the PCD tools. This ensures optimised temperature control of the PCD cutting edges and reliable chip removal even during MQL machining. The use of brazed PCD cutting edges combined with the Smart Cap solution also enables simple handling for the user. The Smart Cap PCD face milling cutter is available from diameter 32mm to diameter 80mm, using 8 to 16 PCD cutting edges for maximum productivity.

CYLINDER HEAD MACHINING – VALVE DRIVE
Valve seat and valve guide machining is the most cost-intensive machining task on the cylinder head. The valves control the load cycle by opening and closing the air inlet and exhaust outlet ducts. For optimum sealing of the valve disc to the valve seat ring, tight shape and position tolerances must be adhered to. Abrasive material also causes a high wear factor. The tool costs are therefore generally very high, during main times as well as downtimes.
PCBN FINE BORING TOOLS WITH SMART SETTING SYSTEM GP 300
Smart Setting System GP 300 with separate indexable insert clamp features integrated fine adjustment for μm-accurate and quick configuration of the precision-ground PCBN cutting edges. Due to the separate tensioning of the indexable insert and clamping holder, there is no need to repeat clamping holder configuration when changing an insert. The 6-fluted machining in the valve guide means that higher machining parameters can be achieved and tight tolerances are maintained at the same time. With the triangular T-insert, only one cutting edge is used for valve ring machining, the remaining cutting edges are protected inside the tool.
PRECISE & EASY
Reduced set-up effort for valve guide and valve seat machining
Machining of modern composite materials
They are lightweight, exceptionally strong and can be adapted to a wide range of applications: Modern fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) are popular in industry. Particularly high standards of quality must be met when these materials are machined on the edges of components. Fibre protrusion, delamination, chipping and thermal damage often occur in these areas. Typical quality problems like these can be avoided by creating the ideal balance between tool geometries, cutting material, process parameters, cooling and clamping of the components. With the right tool, precise and clean component edges can be created even with riveted countersinks.
PCD COUNTERSINK FOR PERFECT EDGES
The countersink consists of a steel body, equipped with either two or three PCD cutters. This cutting material has cutting edges that remain sharp for a long time and can be reground when they reach the end of their service life – a particularly economical solution. When using the countersink, pre-drilled holes are used as pilot holes. Both fixed and interchangeable guide pins are available. The tool is especially suitable for manual drilling jobs. The customer uses a cage to adjust the countersinking depth. However, versions are also available for drill feed units or CNC machines.

PCD COMPRESSION MILLING CUTTER
Modern composite materials
Modern fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are currently finding their way into a wide range of industrial applications for reasons of efficiency, weight, strength or dynamics. When machining these materials, great importance is attached to the quality of the component edges. Typical quality problems here are fibre overhangs, delamination, splintering and thermal damage. To avoid these problems, tool geometries, cutting material, process parameters, cooling and clamping of the components must be coordinated. Even with fibre composite combinations that are difficult to machine, fibre-free edges can be produced with the compression milling cutter.
