cylinder head the cylinder head conveys air plus gasoline or diesel to the combustion chamber and serves as a cover for the cylinders in most four-stroke engines it also mounts the valves camshafts and work as framework for a number of other components it therefore needs to be strong and rigid thanks to the high thermal conductivity and low weight the cylinder head is normally alloyed with aluminium machining challenges the greatest challenge when machining cylinder heads is to minimize the cycle time and at the same time produce components with close tolerances and a defined surface quality deburring irregular tool wear and unpredictable insert tool-life typically provide long cycle times in the face milling operation solution – new face milling cutter the coromill® 5b90 is designed with a unique axial and radial positioning of the inserts which allows each insert to instantly cut chips efficiently without any insert adjustments each cutter is tailor made for each component enabling an optimized number of cutting inserts where one is always a wiper to ensure outstanding surface quality high feed machining is therefore possible with a reduced number of teeth compared to conventional cutters do you want to learn more about how the exact placement of each coromill 5b90-insert allows for a unique combination of high feed milling and close tolerances?
