Sumitomo TSX milling cutters offer more stability during machining

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.

With the TSX series, a highly efficient solution combining an extremely stable milling body and tangentially mounted inserts provide excellent results in shoulder milling, face milling and side face milling. The TSX cutters are available as TSX08 and TSX13 series with a maximum cutting depth of 8mm and 12mm.

The LNEX type four cornered inserts with tangential adjustment enable cost-efficient machining and are available across a wide range of grades with two insert sizes and three different chip breakers. The cutting edge geometry, which has been optimized with regard to sharpness and cutting ability, considerably reduces the cutting forces, so that the TSX series enable reliable machining even in unstable processes.

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