Coated Ultrafine Carbide with HSC High Speed Cutting for Steels/Hardened Steels <HRc55

Mould making requires the best milling cutters as the work pieces are often very valuable and 1 off jobs.  It is essential it is machined right the first time.   Mould making can also involve high metal removal requirement meaning only HIGH PERFORMANCE milling cutters should be used to keep the cycle time down.  X-Power is designed to meet these requirements of performance, tool life, accuracy and reliability.  Some people refer to these types of milling cutters as HSC milling cutters (high speed cutting).

X-Power is the original and most popular range from YG-1 for high speed machining of STEELS, MOULD STEELS and HARDENED STEELS. X-Power is manufactured from ultra-fine micrograin carbide, an extremely hard substrate designed to give exceptional tool life for machining pre-hardened and hardened steels up to 65 Rockwell.. X-Power should always be used for dry cutting on Steel which can extend tool life by 40% compared to cutting wet.  X-Power can be used for high speed cutting as well as at conventional cutting speeds. X-Power offers unbeatable value and performance you can only expect from German or Japanese brands.  Buy online today.
