December 18, 2014Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, Advanced Materials & Tools Company (President - Teruhiko Masuda, Headquarters: 1-3-2 Otemachi,Chiyoda-ku,Tokyo) has launched the WSX series, a new low cutting resistance, double sided insert face mill for general machining.
The innovative WSX cutter provides excellent economy due to the double sided insert (4-corner inserts) and achieves low cutting resistance by utilizing features of both conventional positive and negative rake inserts.
1.Mitsubishi Materials’ proprietary Double sided, Z Geometry insert features a sharp cutting edge with low cutting resistance that helps to control vibration.
2.Chips are discharged outwardly because of the negative/positive edge design. This helps prevent chip jamming and damage to the coolant holes.
3.The unique conical insert seat and Anti Fly mechanism (AFI) holds the inserts securely. The outer edge of the insert is not in contact with the body, thereby preventing damage if sudden fracturing occurs.
