Series expansion. Five types of PVD coated carbide grades added to Multi-functional indexable cutter “APX3000” and “APX4000”

November 20, 2013
APX3000

Multi-functional indexable cutter “APX series” have received a favorable reception as a breakthrough tool with both low cutting resistance and high fracture resistance, as well as longer tool life.
Mitsubishi Materials Corporation will release an additional insert series for “APX series”, which are PVD coated carbide grades “MP6120/MP6130” optimized for milling of steel, PVD coated carbide grades “MP7130 is optimized for milling of stainless steel and PVD coated carbide grades “MP9120/MP9130” is optimized for milling of difficult-to-cut material such as heat resistant alloy and titanium alloy. This series expansion enables to select the optimum grade according to work materials, thereby achieving stable machining.


Features of PVD coated carbide grades “MP6120”, “MP6130”, “MP7130”, “MP9120” and “MP9130”

1.
Adopting accumulated Al-Ti-Cr-N based PVD coating with superior wear resistance, heat resistance and welding resistance.
2.
New PVD coating technology “TOUGH-Stechnology” prevents the development of thermal crack usually associated with milling and dramatically improves fracture resistance.
3.
Al-Cr coating with low coefficient of friction against steels is applied to the outermost layer of PVD coated carbide grades “MP6120/MP6130”, thereby offering excellent welding resistance for steel milling.
4.
Ti coating with low coefficient of friction against stainless steels is applied to the outermost layer of PVD coated carbide grades “MP7130”, thereby offering excellent welding resistance for stainless steel milling.
5.
Cr coating with low coefficient of friction against heat resistant alloy and titanium alloy is applied to the outermost layer of PVD coated carbide grades “MP9120/MP9130”, thereby offering excellent welding resistance for heat resistant alloy and titanium alloy milling.
