Sumitomo Electric Carbide’s TSX-series tangential milling cutter is designed for stable, efficient shoulder milling at high feed rates. The TSX is engineered with a tough and sharp cutting edge, and provides the strength required for increased depths of cut ranging from small jobs to heavy-duty roughing applications.

A four-corner ground-tolerance, tangentially-mounted insert with optimized chipbreaker is said to achieve excellent edge sharpness and sidewall accuracy. The TSX is available in two precision-ground insert sizes, offering a maximum depth of cut of 8 or 12 mm (0.315" or 0.473").

Other features of the competitively-priced TSX include reduced cutting force, surface roughness of less than 0.5 micron Ra, squareness less than 0.05 mm and long-term wear resistance.
