Press Release Summary:
Available in 3-6 in. diameters, 88Â° tangential style SumiEdge Mill allows for use of all 8 cutting edges. By rotating LNMX insert within pocket, use of 4 cutting edges is achieved. Four more indexes can then be added by switching insert from one cutter to next using both left and right hand cutters. ACK200 grade features Super FF coating with ultra fine TiCN layer, while ACK300 grade uses multi-layered Super ZX coating, consisting of nanometer thick TiAIN and AlCrN layers.
Original Press Release:
Sumitomo Introduces SumiEdge Mill 88º Tangential Style Milling Cutter
Mount Prospect, IL - (October 3, 2007) Sumitomo's new SumiEdge Mill is a uniquely engineered 88º tangential style milling cutter, designed for gray and ductile cast iron applications.
Featuring an innovative cutter and insert design, the SumiEdge Mill allows for the use of all 8 cutting edges. First, by rotating the LNMX insert within the pocket, the use of a total of 4 cutting edges is achieved. Four more indexes can then be added by switching the insert from one cutter to the next (using both left and right hand cutters).
The low cutting force and fine pitch design of the SumiEdge Mill allow for higher production machining and exceptional surface finishes.
New ACK200 and ACK300 grades provide stable cutting performance and a longer tool life. The ACK200 grade features Super FF coating with an ultra fine TiCN layer for anti-adhesion and wear resistance during general purpose machining of gray and ductile cast iron. The ACK300 grade uses a multi-layered Super ZX coating, consisting of nanometer thick TiAIN and AlCrN layers, coupled with fine-grained super tough substrate, for excellent fracture resistance.
The SumiEdge Mill is available in 3" - 6" diameters for both left and right milling cutters.
