Now available in inch, as well as metric sizes, LMT-Fette’s (Cleveland, OH) HSC Feed? continues to offer true high feed capability in a solid carbide endmill. It is designed for roughing and semi-finishing of hardened die and mold steels. With chip loads up to .031” per tooth and cutting speeds in excess of 650 sfm, it is common to run HSC Feed? at table feeds exceeding 500 ipm. LMT-Fette designed the HSC Feed? with an exceptionally tough sub-micrograin substrate and LMT’s superior AL2 plus PVD titanium aluminum nitride coating. This yields the best combination of wear resistance and toughness. High feed milling of materials such as P20, H13 and S7 with hardness up to nearly 60Rc, are common applications for the HSC Feed?. It also performs exceptionally in carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron and stainless steel. LMT-Fette’s unique bottom radius design allows the HSC Feed? to rough at chip loads 3 to 5 times higher than conventional solid carbide, ball nose end mills. This capability leads to significantly higher metal removal rates, and dramatically improves the cost performance of tooling. LMT’s HSC Feed? offers a unique center cutting design that performs exceptionally well in a wide array of applications, including 3-D contouring, pocketing, helical interpolation and slotting. In fact, the geometry of the HSC Feed? leaves less stock in the corner pockets than a conventional ball nose endmill. This improves efficiency while reducing the number of tools required to finish a mold. New inch models of the HSC Feed? range in size from 3/16” to ½” in both long and short styles.
