Solid carbide end mills

for general steel machining up to 54 HRC

To constantly meet the challenges of the market, even in difficult times like at present, and to always be able to offer the most appropriate tools, even to very demanding machining tasks, we continuously work on refining our products and technologies. As one result of our permanent research work, an all-new milling cutter series was developed for machining steels and high chromium steels, which promises significant improvement in performance and tool life. These so called FLWX – milling cutters are designed for rough machining and finishing of steels up to 54 HRC.

 

Due to its good chip assimilation qualities and the optimized usage of the cutting contour, processes can be optimized on both counts, technically and economically. The new cutting geometry allows both, full slot roughing and entirely new milling strategies such as trochoidal cycles with high feed rates and cutting speeds.

Coating

These tools come with an all-new coating technology which allows higher density, finer structure and smoother surfaces, compared to common multilayer coating systems. The customers benefit from the high wear resistance, even under high thermal stress, and a simultaneously reduced tendency of adhesion. Furthermore, extremely precise cutting edges are made possible by the excellent accuracy in coating layer thickness.

 

Obviously also the new FLWX milling cutters are finished with the WEDCO VSO micro cutting edge optimization as a homogenous cutting edge increases its stability and prevents microcracks and edge chipping in consequence.
