The cutters are suitable for milling HTSA and hard-to-cut stainless steel of austenitic, duplex and PH types. Click image to enlargeISCAR’s XQUAD extended flute milling cutters and inserts machine titanium, high temperature alloys and stainless steel.

Developed especially for aerospace components manufacturers, they are perfect for slot, shoulder, contour and pocket milling operations in titanium and high temperature alloy components, the tools’ stable design and soft-cutting geometry are facilitated by the helical cutting edges and positive rake angle.

The cutters are also suitable for milling HTSA and hard-to-cut stainless steel of austenitic, duplex and PH types. The new SDK-10/12-C/HP cutters are 90 degrees extended flute shell mills carrying square inserts with four cutting edges and are designed for rough milling operations that require extremely high depth of cut, such as machining deep shoulders, cavities, high edges and full slots. Coolant nozzles send high pressure coolant (HPC) through the cutter body, with coolant channels directed to each insert cutting edge.

The inserts are one-sided with four cutting edges and incorporate two splitting grooves on one cutting edge and one on the opposite side. It is recommended to mount the inserts in an alternating edge configuration on adjacent cutter flutes, to achieve the most effective chip splitting.
