The superlative milling cutter

Maximum metal removal rate

HFC achieves the highest cutting performance with small cuts. The rake angle of the insert is very low so that the cutting forces are in the direction of the spindle. Feed rates up to 3 mm per tooth are therefore possible.

Maximum spindle protection

The light cutting geometry in combination with a compact and stable cutter body construction provides for smooth and vibration-reduced milling action while protecting the spindle.

- The tool diameters range from 16 to 100 mm

- Tools available with normal and close pitch

- Inserts in sizes 06, 09, 12 and 19

1 Face milling with max. fz = 3 mm/tooth

2 Helical plunging to produce deep pockets with maximum metal removal rates
