Series Expansion - New Items Added to the WSX445 Series. A Low Cutting Resistance, Double Sided Insert Face Mill for General Machining

Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, Advanced Materials & Tools Company (President - Fumio Tsurumaki, Headquarters: Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku,Tokyo) has added cermet grade inserts to the WSX445 series, a low cutting resistance, double sided insert face mill for general machining.

The innovative WSX cutter provides excellent economy due to the double sided insert (4-corner inserts). These inserts also achieve low cutting resistance when machining by utilising features of both conventional positive and negative rake inserts.

To enable a wider range of applications, a new insert for left handed cutters and a new cermet grade for the wiper insert have been added to the WSX series.

Features of the items added to the WSX445 series

1. Cermet grades are ideal for general machining and finishing and are able to maintain high quality surface finishes.

2. The new MX3020 cermet grade provides excellent wear resistance and long tool life. The tougher MX3030 with superior fracture resistance is ideal for interrupted machining.

3. The L type breaker inserts; now available for left hand cutters, feature a sharp cutting edge with low cutting resistance. This is suitable for machining difficult-to-cut materials and for use on machines with lower rigidity.
