Big Kaiser’s set of insert grades for its indexable tools—C-Cutter Mini, C-Centering Cutter and Fullcut Mill—are optimized to extend tool life in stainless steel or aluminum.

Suited for peck-drilling, ramping, helical and shoulder milling, the Fullcut Mill is now available with the PVD-coated carbide ACP300 with nanometer-level thickness and ultra-multilayered TiAIN and AICrN film, replacing the ACZ350S for general steel applications.    

The ACM250F stainless steel grade can be used for chamfering and spot drilling with the C-Cutter Mini or C-Centering Cutter. PVD-coated carbide with excellent smoothness resists welding and chipping due to the ultra-multilayered thin film structure made of AlTiN and TiAlCrN. The ACM250F replaces the ACZ150 used with the C-Centering Cutter.
