The Z-Plunge milling cutter from Kennametal is suited for aerospace, die and mold and general engineering applications. The cutter is designed to increase chip evacuation and productivity.
Four cutting edges per insert offer good economy, the company says. Positive cutting geometries reduce cutting forces and enable increased feed rates. Coolant is delivered through interchangeable coolant nozzles available in nine different sizes to accommodate most machines, the company says.
The cutters are available in screw-on, end mill and shell mill styles. Sizes range from 32 to 160 mm and 1.25" to 6". Inserts are available in both ground and direct-pressed forms and come in various grades to suit most workpiece materials, the company says.
