This new cutter features a design created specifically to boost material removal rates and handle high chip loads, resulting in substantial productivity increases and exceptional tool life.
The Highfeed 6 milling cutter offers exceptional performance in steels and cast irons, making it particularly valuable to the mold and die segment. It can also be applied to a variety of difficult-to-machine materials from stainless steel to heat-resistant superalloys.

The large-diameter cutter bodies are capable of 1.8 mm (0.070”) axial depths of cut and feature double-sided inserts with six cutting edges for unsurpassed material removal and low operating costs.
The flexible Highfeed 6 is available in 13 metric cutters with outer diameters from 50 mm to 160 mm and nine imperial cutters ranging from 2 to 4 inches in diameter, as well as both normal and close-pitch versions. Inserts are available in three cutting geometries. A wide variety of advanced grade and coating options are available.
