The new 12mm inserts feature a stronger geometry for heavier cuts using smaller-diameter cutters. Inserts are available with an APET cutting edge for high-performance milling of most tougher/harder steels and cast irons, or an XPET cutting edge for softer steels, stainless steels and high-temperature alloys. Also available are XPET-ALU inserts, ground to a sharp edge for non-ferrous applications, including aluminum, plastics and wood.
