The interchangeable four-flute cutter heads are designed to allow a quick, easy and accurate tool change between various operations.

Tungaloy expands its TungMeister series of interchangeable milling head system to include four-flute cutter heads with high feed capability.

The interchangeable TungMeister heads are designed to allow a quick, easy and accurate tool change between various operations. Now the system incorporates a four-flute option of the VFX-4 style cutting heads for elevated feed capability.

High feed milling technique is common for many manufacturers who are seeking efficient metal removal. To meet the increasing market demands for higher milling efficiency, TungMeister now offers a four-flute high feed head in addition to the existing two-flute head. An increased flute count allows higher parameters as well as prolonged tool life because the same working load is produced by having more cutting edges engaged in the cut, the company says. Soft cutting and strong geometry also improves tool life and stability because of its helical cutting edge and large tool core.
