QwikReam Guidelines for High Speed Reaming

As the cutting speed and feed are much higher than in conventional reaming, the following guidelines should be adhered to:

The machine being used should be in good condition, meaning:

  • Very rigid, to minimize vibration and low runout
  • Equipped with an internal coolant spindle

The reamers being used for high speed reaming are usually coated or made from PCD/CBN.

Conventional reaming should be considered:

  • When the machine is not sufficiently rigid.
  • If only external cooling can be used.
  • In special applications such as thin walled tubes or when reaming soft materials (plastic, etc).
  • When there is a demand to use floating adapters (GFI).

The reaming heads are available in IN2005 grade which is a submicron substrate, TiAlN PVD coated. IN2005 is Ingersoll’s most versatile grade, covering a wide range of workpiece materials and machining conditions. IN2005 features very high fracture and wear resistance which is required for efficient high speed reaming. A special coating process of the TiAlN PVD coating ensures very accurate and uniform coating thickness keeping a sharp cutting edge.

The following grades can be provided on request:

  • PCD grade for machining aluminum
  • PCBN grade for machining cast iron
  • Cermet
