Double-Sided Inserts for Narrow and Long-Reach Uses

ENMX09 cutters have a low entry angle for higher feedrates, and larger cutting diameters for higher metal removal rates.

YG-1 offers EMNX09 double-sided inserts for high-feed applications. The larger ENMX09 inserts provide higher productivity and metal removal rates than the ENMX06 series while having many of the same features. They are intended to strengthen the YG HF4 Mill ENMX high-feed milling series, which was developed to meet stringent demands for versatility, productivity and process stability in today's applications.

ENMX09 double-sided inserts are designed to take on tough applications. "Optimized for larger diameter cutters and larger depth of cuts, YG-1's 09 inserts are designed 20-25% thicker than other, more conventional products on the market," said a company spokesperson. "The added thickness and a wide flank face work to achieve stronger and more stable clamping, more secure machining and longer tool life, especially in difficult-to-machine materials."

Three insert geometries are offered: ENMX General performs best in carbon steel and low-alloy steel; ENMX-TR features a reinforced edge for work in high-alloy steel, hardened steel and cast iron; and the -ST geometry is suited for stainless steel and heat-resistant super alloys.

"Four reinforced-edge corners make expert work of high-feed milling, profiling, face milling, ramping, plunging and helical interpolation," said the spokesperson. "ENMX09 inserts feature a low entry angle for higher feedrates, with a positive rake angle that reduces cutting forces. Larger cutting diameters provide higher metal removal rates. Four true edges deliver a real economic advantage, and typical encroachment on the secondary edge is eliminated."

YG-1 ENMX09 cutters are available as endmills from 1" to 1.5" and face mills from 2" to 6".
