BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. extends its popular Fullcut Mill line with the new Straight Shank FCR, designed for greater DOC and lower cutting resistance. The new Straight Shank FCR's geometry expands capabilities in multi-functional milling, achieving supreme performance for ramping, helical-, shoulder- and plunge-milling operations. The sharp cutting edges of the unique indexable insert retain high strength and toughness due to the optimized eccentric relief angle for each cutter diameter. Extremely sharp cutting edges with both high radial and axial rake angles achieve smooth and quiet endmilling in all materials. The Straight Shank FCR is now available in ¾ in, 1 in, and 1¼ in shank diameters. This newest offering complements the recently introduced integral-shank version of the FCR, which is available in various length configurations for BIG-PLUS shanks CAT40, BT30, and BT40 as well as HSK-A50 and A63 versions. www.bigkaiser.com
