Cutting Tool Inserts

Inserts are designed for machining stainless steel.

KC9225(TM) inserts reduce chip hammering and built-up edge conditions, preventing insert damage in applications demanding continuous to lightly interrupted cuts at high cutting speeds. Deformation resistance combined with sharp cutting edges makes units suitable for machining austenitic stainless steels, when machining at speeds in excess of 550 sfm. Applications include medical and food...
