Extension to range of face milling cutters and shoulder mills
The ETAtec 45P arbour milling cutters, featuring diameters of 50 mm to 160 mm, come equipped with between five and ten 7-edged inserts. The tools not only offer a 45° angle of attack and positive geometry, but also generate low cutting forces, all of which ensures a smooth machining process accompanied by high levels of productivity – an important user benefit, particularly in cases where less powerful machines and unstable clamping setups are being used. Thanks to the multifunctional concept – involving one tool holder for two different insert versions – the inserts designed for face milling can easily be swapped with round cutting inserts if profile milling needs to be carried out, for example.
Where the new arbour milling cutters really show their strengths are in applications involving machining long-chipping materials such as stainless steels, titanium or nickel-based alloys. For these materials, inserts with or without chipbreaker geometry and in various steel grades are available.
