The MSX High Speed Milling Cutter from Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc. (Mount Prospect, IL) achieves high feed rates of up to .055 IPT for significantly reduced cycle times. To ensure higher rigidity and accuracy, the MSX features a double clamping system.
The MSX Mill is ideal for ramping and helical applications using general steel, alloy steel, stainless steel and cast iron. Recommended insert grades for steel include PVD-coated ACP200 and ACP300. For cast iron applications, PVD-coated ACK300 and CVD-coated ACK200 insert grades are recommended. The PVD-coated inserts provide excellent fracture resistance, while the CVD-coated insert offers excellent anti-adhesion and wear resistance.
