In July 2016, Sumitomo will launch the high-efficiency, general-purpose milling cutter "SEC-Sumi Dual Mill DFC Series".

SEC-Sumi Dual Mill DFC Series

In recent years, there has been considerable demand in the machining field for high-efficiency machining, excellent machined surface quality, and lower machining costs. Sumitomo will release the "SEC-Sumi Dual Mill DFC Series" in response to these requirements. The DFC series has the cutting edge strength to achieve high-efficiency machining, and its optimized cutting edge shape design results in excellent machined surface quality. In addition, the unique concave shape created at the insert's flank is designed to enable full use of all six corners even when an edge is worn or has suffered fracture, resulting in outstanding cost effectiveness.

The features of this grade are as follows:
