Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. has expanded its highly acclaimed shoulder-milling cutters "SEC-WaveMill WEX2000/3000" series to include the "WEX1000" series for high efficiency machining in low depth-of-cut applications. The company has launched 63 items of small sized indexable inserts and 17 items of cutter body in April, 2016.
In recent years, there have been demands for reduction of machining costs and improvement of productivity in all machining fields. To meet these requirements, the "WEX1000" series has been developed to expand and supplement the existing "SEC-WaveMill WEX2000/3000" series. The "WEX1000" series lineup starts from a small diameter (ø10), and supports cutter diameters previously not available in conventional indexable tools. In addition, its optimized design achieves excellent machined surface quality and is capable of high efficiency machining with multiple cutting edges.
The features of this grade are as follows:
Cutter diameters ranging from ø10mm to ø63mm, supports machining diameters and applications previously not supported by conventional indexable tools.
Designed with twice as many teeth as conventional cutters of the same diameter to achieve efficiency machining.
Machined surface quality:
Achieves excellent machined surface quality with optimized cutting edge design.
