Boost Your Milling with a Tough Tangential Insert !

TOUGH & VERSATILE

Our thoroughly tested design will completely change how you see the tangential cutter.

About TOUGH

The tangential mount cutter--reinvented!

The tangentially mounted insert makes the cutter body core larger for more rigidity (S1>S2). This means stability in cut =

• longer insert tool life,

• longer cutter body tool life,

• better surface finish and

• higher feed rates.

Wider seating surface for less insert movement in the pocket.

Comments from developers

Durability born through repeated destructive tests.

In order to improve durability, we began development by first applying a load to the cutter until it broke. After analyzing the reasons it broke, we produced an improved version then broke that as well. We repeated this process until we were satisfied with the results. As a result of this pursuit of durability through thorough destructive tests, we were able to come up with a cutter that is ideal for unmanned operation and high efficiency machining.

About VERSATILE

Solving problems as a multi-functional cutter.

Comments from developers

Through trial and error, we’ve solved machining problems.

Most tangential mount cutters must be changed out with dedicated inserts for ramping.
We made it a priority to unify these two styles of inserts, so as to avoid the trouble of managing two sets of inserts, and prevent installation mistakes.
By focusing on the surface design of these new inserts, and through repeated trial and error, we were able to resolve one of the major issues in the industry.

VPX series covers most milling applications.

Inserts

Double-sided insert that has revolutionized tangential insert machining.

Comments from developers

An insert shape that was possible to design, but difficult to commercialize.

The shape of the insert makes it tough while still enabling versatility. We have conquered many challenges from prototype to production--a testimony to Mitsubishi Materials commitment to precision.

Insert Grades for a Wide Range of Materials

MP6100/MP7100/MP9100 Series
TOUGH-Σ Technology

A fusion of the separate coating technologies; PVD and multilayering provides extra toughness.

CVD Coating MC5020

First recommendation for cast iron milling.
MC5020 has excellent wear resistance and also controls thermal cracking and chipping that are common when machining ductile cast irons.


Black Super-smooth Coating
Black super-smooth coating prevents abnormal damage such as weld chipping.
