X-Speed Rougher

High Performance Rippers With Ultra High Metal Removal, No Vibration & Low Cutting Load by YG-1

  • Variable helix flute design to prevent vibration
  • Special variable pitch profile reduces cutting force and stress on machine spindle
  • Increased productivity with high feed rates and large depths of cut
  • Feed rates up to 2,500mm/min
  • Strong end tooth design ideal for plunge and pocket milling
  • Ideal for use on carbon/alloy steels, tool steels, pre-hardened steels & stainless steels

Cutting at high feed rates with rippers can cause vibration and damage to the machine spindle. Many people use HSS or Powder metal rippers as carbide rippers can require too much power for the machine. YG-1 have created a new concept of carbide ripper that has a VARIABLE HELIX and VARIABLE PITCH... the X-Speed Rougher.  This has 2 effects when machining: firstly the variable pitch creates uneven chips which massively reduced machine load meaning much higher feed rates can be used, even on low power machines.  Secondly, the variable helix reduces resonance of the tool at high feed rates, even at large depths of cut, eliminating vibration.  The overall result is a ripper that can machine at up to 2 metres a minute feed rates, silently and with unbelievable tool life.

The YG-1 X-Speed Rougher variable helix milling cutters have a special geometry that allows you to take twice the depth of cut of a normal carbide  ripper with 3-4 times the feed rate, with a low cutting load and vibration free milling.  Tool life compared to normal coated carbide can increased by 300-400%.  Suitable for all steels up to HRc45.  For stainless steel, use the new powder metal geometry.
