Blue Is The Colour For Milling Hardened Steels



Blue Is The Colour for Milling on Hardened Steels.

 Cutwel’s X5070 Blue Milling Cutters are ideal for Ultra High Speed Cutting of Hardened Steels. YG-1 developed these  to meet the demand for an affordable alternative to the traditional and expensive Japanese made cutters. Made from Nanograin carbide, the X5070 series can machine speeds up to 40,000rpm on hardened steel up to 70 Rockwell.


 The Nanograin substrate is the hardest carbide available, couple that with the special blue coating giving you ultra-high wear resistance and unbeatable performance on hardened steels and head resistant super steels.


Everyone likes to decrease cycle times and the X5070’s do just that on applications that require high speed cutting and small depths of cut as well as giving the longest tool life of the most difficult mould materials. Coolant isn’t required either as these cutters are perfectly suitable for dry cutting.


Available in a wide range of different types for mould making including Standard, Miniature (with Diameters from 0.3mm),  6 Flute 45 Degree, Ball Nose and Rib Processing – why wait buy your X5070’s today from Cutwel!
