Our new EDGE²® DSS system was engineered to deliver both premium 90° milling performance and the industry’s best indexable milling value. Double-sided DSS inserts provide four usable cutting edges to significantly lower cost-per-edge versus single-sided inserts, and DAPRA’s permanent automatic cutter replacement program makes it easier for shops to keep good-condition tools in use rather than making do with worn-out cutters.
DSS inserts feature a positive geometry for low cutting pressure while still maintaining strength. Designed convexity creates smooth surface finishes when step-down profile milling, and a custom-designed wiper edge generates beautiful surface finishes. They are available in both T-land and dished geometries, in a variety of high-performance grades and coatings.
DSS end mills, shell mills and screw-on modular heads are machined from hardened, high-shock tool steel to minimize runout and maximize durability and life. Nickel plating provides a harder casing for improved pocket durability and resistance to chip galling, and deep gullets deliver efficient chip evacuation, even on the heaviest cuts. Long-reach tools are available with carbide core for enhanced rigidity and reduced deflection.

DSS is the latest extension of DAPRA’s revolutionary new EDGE² line, a truly indexable tool family built around high-performance, twin-edged inserts and heavy-duty cutter bodies for superior roughing and finishing. All DAPRA cutting tools are made in the USA, and a guaranteed test order program provides shops a risk-free introduction to these tools.
