Why buy High Performance Multi-Purpose Milling Cutters?

Our range of high-performance multi-purpose milling cutters are the next step up compared to general purpose tooling. They offer a wide array of additional benefits such as longer tool life, faster machining, better surface finish and higher metal removal. These are all achieved due to the unique geometries and special features that higher performance milling cutters tend to have. Many high-performance milling cutters are also material specific. This is because of their enhanced performance; however, it limits the amount of materials they can machine, which is why a high performance multi-purpose milling cutter is an excellent choice for engineers who machine a wide range of materials but need better performance than a general purpose tool.


How to choose the right High Performance Multi-Purpose Milling Cutter?

There are many factors to consider when purchasing a high-performance multi-purpose milling cutter, however the first consideration should be if you have a suitable set up or machine capability to run them because they generally require a higher power machine. The next thing to consider is generally what you are looking for from a high-performance milling cutter. Below is a summary of our ranges to point you in the right direction:

V7+ 4 Flute HPC Milling Cutters - One of the latest additions to YG-1’s offering is the V7+ 4 flute HPC range. HPC stands for high performance cutting and that’s exactly what you get with these. They are the best choice for anyone who wants an all-round milling cutter which combines high metal removal rates with exceptional tool life. The reason these are labelled as the best all-rounder is due to the fact it can machine a wide range of materials such as carbon steel, alloy steel, tool steel, cast iron, stainless steel, titanium and heat resistant super alloys such as inconel and hastelloy. But not only that, you can rough, finish, slot and profile with the same tool!

V7 INOX - Despite it’s name suggesting a more dedicated Stainless Steel type cutter, the V7 inox from YG-1 is actually a very good option on a wider range of materials which also include Steel <40HRc, Cast Iron and Titanium Alloys. The main feature is the original V7 variable helix design which eliminates vibration to ensure an excellent surface finish. The special geometry also provides higher speeds, deeper cuts and larger metal removal rates compared to general purpose milling cutters.

V7+ 6 Flute TRP Milling Cutters - The highest performing multi-purpose milling cutter available from global market leaders YG-1. The range is split in two depending on your machining requirements, but once you experience the ultra-high feed rates of the TRP series or the ultra-deep cuts of the chip splitter range you won’t look elsewhere. The revolutionary 6 flute design ensures phenomenal performance and outstanding surface finish on Steel, Stainless Steel, Cast Iron and HRSA’s.

Harvi I TE - Kennametal’s flagship Harvi I TE range delivers outstanding productivity and reliability across a wide range of materials. Dubbed the king of high performance milling, these are ideal for high metal removal rates on steel <HRc45, cast iron, nickel alloys, titanium alloys and stainless steels.
