TSX Series Tangential Milling Cutter Handles High Feed Rates
Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc.’s TSX series tangential milling cutter is designed for efficient shoulder milling and is engineered with a tough and sharp cutting edge for stable, highly efficient machining at high feed rates.
Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc.’s TSX series tangential milling cutter is designed for shoulder milling. For machining at high feed rates, the TSX series is engineered with a tough and sharp cutting edge, the company says. It can handle increased depths of cut ranging from a small job to a heavy-duty roughing application.
According to the company, a four-corner ground tolerance tangentially mounted insert, with an optimized chipbreaker, achieves edge sharpness and sidewall accuracy. The TSX is available in two precision-ground insert sizes offering a maximum depth of cut of 8 mm (0.315”) and 12 mm (0.473”).
Other features of the TSX include reduced cutting force, surface roughness Ra under 0.5 µm, squareness under 0.05 mm and long-term wear resistance, the company says.
