Milling system 406 with wiper geometry
Paul Horn GmbH has extended the 406 tangential milling cutter system to include an insert with wiper geometry for finishing. The new insert has been developed in response to demand from Horn’s customers, reflecting the fact that surface quality requirements are constantly increasing. The new geometry produces very high surface qualities, even at high feed rates, resulting in shorter machining times. Moreover, the geometry makes it possible to reduce the need for subsequent grinding processes.
The single-edged finishing insert is used in the 406 system's 90-degree shoulder mills. Only one insert with wiper geometry is required in the tool body. The remainder may be standard 406 system indexable inserts. The wide finishing insert is available in grade AS4B for the workpiece material groups P and M, and in grade AS46 for workpiece material group K.
