The body of the tool is made from a special alloy
steel that has high heat resistant properties.
A special surface treatment is used to increase wear
and corrosion resistance.
The lower cutting edge consists of 2 inserts,
resulting in higher cutting edge strength and
increased tool life.
Tool management is simplified by using only one
type of insert for all 4 cutting edges. By rotating the
inserts it’s possible to use all 4 corners.
The AQX is designed with a center cutting edge,
making it possible to sink, helical mill and pocket
without a pre-prepared hole.
The body is designed with through coolant holes to improve cooling and chip disposal.
The AQX is also available without coolant holes.
An economical short edge type body is available with only 2 inserts for short depth of cut applications.
The cutting edge diameter DC has been designed so it is larger than the shank diameter DCON,
making it possible to machine vertical faces without any interference.
Wide range of grades for specific materials MIRACLE SIGMA accumulated Al-Ti-Cr-N based PVD coating
A fusion of the separate coating technologies;
PVD and multi-layering realises extra toughness.
Economical molded inserts.
Suitable for machining a wide range of work materials under various cutting conditions.
High accuracy peripherally ground inserts.
Large rake angle to provide high cutting edge sharpness.
An HTi10 insert is available with a polished rake face to prevent welding problems when machining aluminum alloys.
