The SNKX high-feed square milling insert from Techniks’ Nexus Cutting Tools line features eight corners with helical geometry to deliver more cutting edges per insert for increased productivity. The insert is manufactured from sub-micro-grain carbide and with advanced PVD coating technology that is said to be thicker than most PVD coatings. This enables machining of multiple materials and improves tool life.
Offering high material removal rates, the cutters are suited for applications such as face milling, copy milling, plunge milling and roughing operations on pockets and 3D surfaces. They are available in standard Weldon shank end mills and face mills, or in Power-Loc and shrink-mill designs for zero runout.
