At IMTS, Hitachi Metals America, Ltd. – Cutting Tools Group will introduce to the North American market the new IASR/ASR MULTI Indexable Cutting Tools featuring inserts coated with the world’s first Hybrid Coating Technology. The IASR/ASR MULTI Indexable Cutting Tools utilize inserts coated with Hitachi’s new JX Coating—a new PVD coating that incorporates particles with enhanced self-lubricating characteristics. Lubricity as well as hardness, heat-resistance, and chipping resistance are vastly improved over previous coatings. The JX Coating improves machining efficiency and tool life for high-speed, high-feed-rate roughing and semi-roughing of general and pre-hardened steels. The IASR/ASR MULTI with JX Coated inserts was designed to take advantage of today’s most advanced machine tools, and performs well at feed rates higher than 20m/min (787ipm). The IASR/ASR MULTI Indexable Cutting Tools feature a rigid mill design, and are available in straight shank, modular and face mill styles. Sizes range from 3/8” to 2-1/2” in inch sizes and 16mm to 66mm in metric sizes. One insert fits all diameters and styles
