Tungaloy has expanded its DoForce-Tri line of square shoulder milling cutters to include a size-07 insert with six cutting edges for precision milling and insert economy. The insert is designed to meet the needs of efficiency when machining smaller, more intricate components made through near-net-shape molding.

The DoForce-Tri 07 insert maximizes insert density and feed capability (as much as double that of the conventional trigonal insert) while maintaining the same depth of cut. This is thanks to the curved cutting edge geometry on a smaller insert. The insert is said to provide light cutting forces while maintaining better stability than standard positive milling inserts, making it ideal for machining weak workpiece setups on low-rigidity machines. The six cutting edges include wiper edges for good surface finish.  

Cutter diameters range from 18 to 32 mm and from 0.75" to 1.25" for the cylindrical type; and from  40 to 50 mm and 2.0" for the shell mill (bore) type.
