    Boost Your Milling with a Tough Tangential Insert !

    TOUGH & MULTI

    Extremely rigid and functional.
    Our thoroughly calculated design will completely change how you see the tangential cutter.

    About TOUGH

    Pursuing the tough machining characteristic of tangential blade inserts.

    By arranging the inserts tangentially, high holder rigidity is secured. Also, because the part subjected to the highest loads during machining is larger (S1>S2), it has great fracture resistance and can be used without worry for high efficiency machining.

    The wide seating surfaces provided allow the insert to clamp on more firmly. Suppresses deviation of the insert caused by vibrations during machining.
    Comments from developers

    Durability born through repeated destructive tests.

    In order to improve durability, we began development by first applying a load to the cutter until it broke. After analyzing the reasons it broke, we produced an improved version then broke that as well. We repeated this process until we were satisfied with the results. As a result of this pursuit of durability through thorough destructive tests, we were able to come up with a cutter that is ideal for unmanned operation and high efficiency machining.

    About MULTI

    Solving problems as a multi-functional cutter.

    Comments from developers

    Through trial and error, we’ve solved industry problems.

    The surface-to-surface balance of the insert is what allows the multi-functionality of ramping to be achieved, while maintaining the good chip ejection and the cutting performance inherent to tangential blade cutters. Most tangential blade cutters must be changed out with dedicated inserts for ramping. We made it a priority to unify these two styles of inserts, so as to avoid the trouble of managing two sets of inserts, and prevent installation mistakes.
    By focusing on the surface design of these new inserts, and through repeated trial and error, we were able to resolve one of the major issues in the industry.

    Different types of milling cover a wide variety of situations.

    Comments from developers

    An insert shape that was possible to design, but difficult to commercialize.

    The shape of the insert makes it tough while still enabling multi-cutting. It has been extremely difficult to move from the prototype, to maintaining a stable shape as a product. It is not an exaggeration to call this product, which has finally been commercialized through repeated improvements, the jewel of Mitsubishi Materials technology.
