YG-1 K2 Coated Carbide

K2 Coated Carbide General Purpose Milling Cutters from YG-1 For Steel & Stainless Steel

General purpose coated carbide milling cutters are generally coated with TiALN (titanium aluminium nitride) and made from a low cost carbide substrate.  Performance is limited and dry cutting is not normally possible.

YG-1 K2 Coated Micrograin Carbide milling cutters are first choice for general purpose milling of Steels, Copper, Cast Iron and Stainless Steel. The K2 coating offers higher performance machining compared to TiALN and K2 Carbide is suitable for dry cutting on Steel and can result in improved tool life of around 40% compared to machining wet.  Use K2 carbide and see the tool life benefits compared to most other general purpose TiALN coated carbide. K2 carbide milling cutters also offer Rib Processing slot drills for deep pocket milling in small diameters with long reach.

For better tool life and 300-900% performance improvements, we recommend V7 Mill variable helix milling cutters which offer the best performance, cost and tool life ratio of any milling cutter and are brilliant for machining steels, stainless steel, titanium and Inconel.  Browse our range or buy today!
