Available from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC), it is for multi-function cutting tasks, including chamfering, back chamfering and face milling capable of slashing machining times by up to 85%.

This high productivity improvement is credit to the tool's innovative design that reduces the cutting diameter down to the lowest limit, which enables impressive ultra-high spindle speeds and feed rates. Cutting speed is further increased by the new wear-resistant inserts with multi-layer physical vapour deposition (PVD) coating.

Available in single-insert and four-insert configurations, increasing the number of inserts multiplies the feed rate, with this significantly speeding up operations and improving productivity. The introduction of the C-Cutter Mini introduces of the world's smallest hex insert, with a diameter of 3.97 mm. This allows highly efficient back chamfering from a 6 mm starting hole diameter, while the three-corner insert design reduces costs.

Says Giampaolo Roccatello, VP sales at BIG Kaiser: “The new C-Cutter Mini delivers a 'triple effect', essentially compounding the benefits of the four inserts. It delivers faster feed rates and the reduced diameter raises the spindle speed, whilst the new PVD coating enables higher cutting speeds. This tool is a prime example of how BIG Kaiser’s focus on innovation consistently delivers tangible results to our customers.”
