Kyocera unveils MFH high feed milling cutter

Kyocera Unimerco Tooling has introduced its MFH high feed milling cutter, which features an anti-vibration design for increased productivity in ramping and helical milling at high speeds. The MFH offers a variety of cutting options with three different inserts designed specifically to: enhance general milling; support large depth-of-cut operations (up to 5 mm); and provide a wiper edge for roughing and finishing, even when using small machining centres.

The tool offers a convex helical edge design to reduce cutting forces during initial workpiece contact. According to Kyocera, it is suitable for applications including face milling and shouldering, slotting, ramping, helical milling and plunging. The MFH is Kyocera's first high feed milling tool. Inserts come in newly developed grades for difficult-to-cut materials: the CA6535 insert for Ni-based heat-resistant alloys and martensitic stainless steel; and the PR1535 insert for titanium alloys and precipitation-hardened stainless steel.
