Mitsubishi Materials extensive high performance, indexable insert milling cutter range has been expanded to include a brand new type - VPX. This innovative new tool will be on display for the first time in the UK on Mitsubishi’s stand at MACH (Stand H6-320)
VPX can be used over an extremely wide range of milling functions, ranging from standard shoulder milling through to ramping and pocketing. This multi-functionality was a key factor in the original design parameters, together with the knowledge that today’s customers require both high performance and optimum usability to reduce cutting tool inventories.
The insert geometry provides the required toughness together with the ability of multi-functionality. Importantly, the inserts are double sided and therefore provide the essential element of economy.
Offered in 12 different types, including the latest MP6100, MP7100 and MP9100 series of grades to cover machining of materials from carbon, stainless and hardened steels through to cast iron and difficult-to-cut materials.
VPX 200 and 300 series cutters are available in two different sizes to accommodate both large and smaller machines. The 200 series has 09 size inserts, while the 300 has larger 12 size inserts and both series are available in shank, screw-in and arbor types, ranging from 16 to 80 mm diameter.
