Vernon Hills, Illinois – YG-1 has launched the ENMX High-Feed Mill, a new high-feed milling series developed for mold and die, power generation and a variety of applications and materials in general machining markets. The ENMX High-Feed Mill 4 is ideal for high-feed milling with small-diameter tools, and the unique thickness of the YG-1 ENMX insert offers a series of benefits, according to YG-1. First, the inserts are 20-25 percent thicker than others on the market. This allows normal flank wear to develop without encroaching on the secondary edge and results in full use of all four edges for a more economical solution.
Greater insert thickness also lends itself to stable clamping, ensuring predictable and secure machining and longer tool life in tough applications. Also, the thicker negative insert has a positive rake angle that improves chip evacuation and reduces machining load. In addition, YG-1’s corner protection design enhances rigidity while increasing tool life with the chip-breakers’ optimized geometry. The ENMX cylindrical cutter is available in diameters from 16 to 32mm (0.75” to1.25”). Shell mills are available in 40 to 50mm (1.5” to 2”) diameters.
