New Mini-Feed cutters and inserts–part of Dapra Corporation’s high-feed Rhino-Feed line–allow for feed rates as much as 5 times faster than normal in light-DOC applications.

The Mini-Feed line is optimized for cuts of 0.500” to 1.000” diameter and a maximum depth of 0.030”, with inserts featuring three usable edges. End mills and modular heads are available with one, two or three flutes. Mini-Feed inserts feature the smallest inscribed circle (8 mm IC) of any Rhino-Feed option and operate at light to moderate FPT, making them especially useful for detail roughing and high speed machining, especially in small machines. Thanks to its positive geometry, Mini-Feed is suitable for use with all materials.

Dapra’s line adjusts feed rates to compensate for the significant chip thinning that occurs during high-feed milling when an extreme lead angle is used. Mid-feed and heavy-feed cutters and inserts are also available for diameters up to 4” and depths of cut up to 0.060”.
