The new FMWX face mills are suitable for finishing steel, stainless steel and cast iron. The system is versatile and can be used in a broad range of applications thanks to the wide selection of CVD and PVD coated inserts on offer, with diameters of 50 to 125 mm available.
The ultra-high-precision insert seats ensure high repeatability. And because the seats are compatible with the inserts, no subsequent adjustments are required. The milling system is equipped with a wedge clamping mechanism, allowing insert seats to be replaced quickly, which in turn reduces set-up times. In addition, targeted internal cooling improves chip removal, resulting in increased tool life.
As a further highlight, the precision-ground wiper indexable insert guarantees high surface qualities. The thickness of the insert provides increased resistance to breakage, while the positive rake angle generates low cutting forces. In addition, the wear-resistant substrate ensures an extremely long tool life and makes the insert with four cutting edges exceptionally economical.
Due to its low power consumption, the FMWX system is also suitable for low-performance machines.
