Tungaloy has expanded its TFE series long-running range of face milling cutters for finishing applications to incorporate bodies with insert adjustable pockets, achieving near zero axial runout for surface finishing results. In addition to productivity, the TFE cutters are engineered for precision in face milling and the series carries a wide spectrum of coated and uncoated insert grades, geometries, and cutting edge preparations for surface finishing potential and burr-free edges on the workpieces.

The TFE series now features adjustable pockets to eliminate axial runout of the inserts. The screw and wedge located beneath each insert pocket are used to axially adjust the insert heights to a tolerance of ±0.065 mm (±0.0026”). This allows not only better surface quality on the workpieces, but also to uniform the wear progression on all the inserts in the cutter, thus facilitating the insert life management.
