Series Expansion - New Wiper Insert Added to the WSX445 Series Low Cutting Resistance, Double Sided Insert Face Mill for General Machining

November 5, 2015

Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, Advanced Materials & Tools Company (President - Fumio Tsurumaki, Headquarters: 1-3-2 Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku,Tokyo) has added a wiper insert in the CVD coated grade MC5020, for the WSX face milling cutter series.


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.

The cutting edge of wiper inserts is wider than that of standard inserts and ensures that all feed step marks form the standard inserts are removed, thereby ensuring high quality surface finishes.

Features of the wiper insert in the CVD coated grade MC5020

1. The double sided insert provides excellent economy.

2. MC5020 provides long tool life due to excellent wear and thermal crack resistance that prevents chipping usually associated with machining ductile cast irons.

3. Improved adhesion of the coating to the substrate surface provides increased peeling resistance. With an extremely smooth surface, it results in excellent resistance against adhesion, abnormal damage and weld chipping.
