Abstract:

The report outlines the tool engineering and development of a unique, composite carbide-wafer, step-milling cutter which is capable of producing the specified critical contour of the shell-forcing angle in various drop-type breech blocks. This cutter innovation makes it possible to completely finish the shell forcing angle to size and location in one single pass. Author
