Mid-feed inserts have a stronger cross-section than the mini-feed, but are smaller than the heavy-feed.
R3 Mid-Feed Cutters & Inserts
1.000" - 3.000" OD
Heavy-feed inserts have the strongest cross-section of the line.
R4 Heavy-Feed Cutters & Inserts
VAPOR™ is created for lighter, faster cutting, ideal for new machine tool technology.
• A new double-sided series for lower cost per usable cutting edge
• Designed with a positive cutting edge and excellent ramping capability
• Large insert screw for longevity and easy indexing
VAPOR™ insert technology includes a positive cutting edge and extra bottom clearance for a smooth chip flow and excellent ramping capability for a double-sided insert. All edges are labeled with “dots” or “dashes” to aid in indexing accuracy.VAPOR™ Tri-X2 inserts include dedicated grades and geometries for a wide range of materials.› “T” geometry for steels, irons, hardened steels› “D” geometry for stainless steels, high-temp alloys
How does it work?
High-feed milling creates significant chip thinning due to an extreme lead angle. Feed rates must compensate for this to maximize productivity. The figure at left shows an example of this condition.
