Double-sided inserts with double cost-effectiveness

Economic milling process

Double the number of cutting edges combined with the optimal depth of cut reduces the costs per cutting edge notably.

Quick machining with high metal removal rates

The high stability of the cutter bodies and inserts makes high feed rates possible. The optimal chip pocket geometry ensures good chip evacuation.

User-friendly handling

The inserts have 4 indexes and come with a peripheral indexing system, so they can be fixed quickly and accurately.

- Stable and compact mounting system as well as optimised chip pockets for long-chipping materials

- Insert seat with peripheral indexing

- Through coolant for minimum quantity lubrication (MQL)

- High performance grades CTC5235 and CTC5240

Carbide properties:

- Extremely heat-resistant

- Very tough

- Excellent resistance to notching

- CVD high performance coating with maximum hardness and smooth surface

Work piece: turbine blade

Material: 1.4938; Jethete M-152

Cutting speed: 140 m/min

Feed rate: 0.30 mm/tooth

Depth of cut: 1.5 mm

MaxiMill 252 achieves secure processes when machining a turbine blade made of stainless steel. At the same time the milling cutter increases the cutting speed by 37% and the feed rate by 22%. Instead of 4 the milling cutter has 8 usable cutting edges thus reducing the costs per insert.
