Sumitomo Introduces Smooth Cutting Wex Indexable Insert Endmills and Shoulder Milling Cutters
Mount Prospect, IL - (August 25, 2006) Based on the concept of its successful WaveMill Series, Sumitomo's new WEX indexable insert endmills and shoulder milling cutters are designed for the smooth cutting of a variety of materials.
The wave-shaped cutting edges of the WEX generate lower cutting forces, while the high shear cutting action ensures smooth and accurate performance. This is true, too, even during deep slotting or milling using low rigidity machines. Consisting of heat- and wear-resistant Nano technology coated grades, the WEX's high strength cutting edges substantially enhance feed rates, machining accuracy and surface finish.
WEX cutter bodies feature a highly durable surface treatment and an improved method of insert clamping into the pocket.
CVD and PVD insert grades are available to offer extended tool life in steel and cast iron applications.
The WEX comes in Super ZX coated ACP100, ACP200, ACP300 for steels and ACK100, ACK200 and ACK300 for cast irons.
