SGE inserts for Kennametal’s Mill 1-14/18 platform are said to improve performance for companies machining stainless steels, super alloys and high-strength steels. Micro-geometry features, such as a 20-degree rake angle, a negative T-land and a small hone, enhance the inserts’ performance by increasing feed capability, reducing cycle times, lowering cutting forces and increasing tool life.
The inserts are suited for face milling, shoulder milling, pocketing, contour milling and full slotting applications in the aerospace, automotive, energy and power generation, medical, food processing, chemical processing and die and mold industries. The company says the inserts can also produce 90-degree walls.
