YG-1 Launches First Face Milling Platform

By YG-1 Press Release

Vernon Hills, IL (August 3,2021) – Global machine-tool powerhouse YG-1 is ready to market its newest innovation –FM10 PNMU face milling indexable inserts – combining multi-corner face milling performance with high-feed capabilities.

Yg-1 face mill combines multi-corner milling, high feed rates.

The advanced design of YG-1’s FM10 PNMU inserts separates the cutting edge and the wiper, resulting in 10 true cutting edges.

Another feature – the 36⁰ entry angle – successfully generates thinner chips, providing operators higher feed capabilities. The curved cutting ridge and wiper design is engineered to reduce cutting forces and directs these forces axially along the strength of the machining center into the spindle. These advantages, taken together, optimize operational stability to provide users superior surface finishes and greater productivity.

FM10 PNMU cutters and inserts are recommended for milling in steel and cast iron. Now available in the U.S. and Canada, this YG-1 platform can be ordered in diameters of 2 to 4 inches. YG-1 is developing an expanded range of diameters as well as extending the line for face milling in stainless and other materials. For more information, see
