Designed for efficient shoulder milling, Sumitomo Electric Carbide’s TSX series tangential milling cutters feature a sharp cutting edge strong enough for increased depths of cut in a range of applications, from small jobs to heavy-duty roughing. They are available in two insert sizes, offering a maximum depth of cut of 8 mm (0.315") and 12 mm (0.473").

The four-corner ground-tolerance tangentially mounted inserts feature an optimized chipbreaker and are said to achieve high edge sharpness and sidewall accuracy. The also offer reduced cutting force, surface roughness of less than 0.5 micron, squareness of less than 0.05 mm and long-term wear resistance, the company says.
