MillQuadFeed – Windmill Housing – AH120


High productivity:
The customer was using a flat shaped insert to avoid a fracture of cutting edge doe to machining of interrupted casting face. But it is not increase feeds because of machine vibration. MillQuadFeed’s insert has rake angle, it prevent machine vibration and it can increase feed. As a result, MillQuadFeed achieve 4.2 times MRR against competitor by increase the cutting speed and feed rate. Also thanks to the toughened cutting edge and grade, the fracture did not occurred.
