The APX is highly effective in various 3-D machining operations including excellent ramping capabilities.
Rigidity has been increased by using a larger amount of backing metal behind the insert.
Resistance to corrosion and abrasion on the cutter bodies made possible by using a superior highly heat resistant alloy and a special surface treatment.
The cutter bodies are designed with through coolant holes to improve cooling and chip disposal.
APX3000/4000, an extra long shank type is now available for difficult to reach applications.
PVD coatings have properties such as toughness, low coefficient of friction and excellent welding, wear and heat resistance. This results in tough, precision grades such as MP6100, MP7100 and MP9100.
With high wear resistance and outstanding fracture resistance, MC5020 is ideal for milling for cast iron.
Stable machining properties are enabled when the coating is combined with a high wear and fracture resistant carbide substrate.
Ideal for heavy interrupted cutting of stainless and general steels because of the excellent fracture resistance properties.
Advanced simulation technology has been utilized to develop the inserts.
Efficient machining on low rigidity machines and workpieces is now possible and is ideal for thin wall or extended reach applications.
Heat generated during cutting has been reduced due to the APX’s special geometry.
Ideal chip shape formed by the insert for easy disposal.
High wall accuracy can be produced by this body and unique insert geometry.
Achieved a longer and more stable tool life due to excellent resistance to chipping.
Superior wear and chipping resistance.
Excellent wear resistance!
