Why buy High-Performance Cast Iron Milling Cutters?
Whilst cast iron isn’t the most difficult material to machine in terms of machining complexity it still has its challenges. A fairly brittle metal which can be easy to cut, but only once you get past the outer casting of the material. Because of this, we would recommend a high-performance tool that is excellent on harder materials to ensure your tool doesn’t fail on first contact or wear quickly during the machining process.
How to Choose the Right High-Performance Cast Iron Milling Cutter?
Our range of high-performance milling cutters for cast iron encompasses all you will ever need to machine the material with ease. Our range is ideal for harder materials, which combat the casting nature of cast iron, whilst ensuring higher speeds and longer tool life than general-purpose alternatives. Please see a summary of our range below:
4G Mills - The ultimate solution if you require speed, accuracy, durability & choice in your cast iron milling applications. The YG-1 4G mills have the biggest range of diameters, lengths, and geometries on the market. The advanced Y1200 heat-resistant coating combined with a premium carbide substrate offers exceptional tool life on harder materials.
X-Power Pro - The advanced ‘Z Coating’ with ultrafine micrograin carbide substrate ensure exceptional tool life in cast iron milling. X-Power Pro milling cutters are suitable for high precision and high-speed milling of steels, hardened steels up to 55 Rockwell, stainless steel and cast iron. The range of geometries available makes these ideal for mould and die, valves, pumps, tool making, automotive and defense industries.
X-Speed Roughers - The king of steel roughing applications. Where other milling cutters may fatigue during cast iron milling, the X-speed rougher (also known as ripper) offers silent roughing with 2-3 times faster metal removal rates. The special uneven ripper tooth design breaks swarf down to improve chip flow, which in turn allows for large depths of cut and high feed rates to reduce overall cycle times. So if you rough plenty of cast iron applications, the X-Speed rougher is your first choice for maximum metal removal rates across a wide range of materials including cast iron, low carbon steel, alloy steel and pre-hardened steel <45HRC.
V7+ 4 Flute HPC Milling Cutters - Although this isn't a dedicated range for cast iron, the V7+ 4 flute range still offers high performance in cast iron milling. One of the major benefits for this range compared to other material specific cast iron ranges is that you can slot & profile with just 1 tool! 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.
