CS300 inserts are SiAlON-type ceramics that offer high notch wear resistance, toughness and thermal shock resistance. The inserts also optimize flank wear resistance at higher cutting speeds ranging from 600 – 1,200 meters per minute and enable feeds from 0.05 – 0.15 mm per tooth. Together, these attributes reduce machining cost per workpiece, increase output, shorten lead times and lower energy consumption.
New RN/RP cutter bodies are hardened and nickel-coated for high reliability, reduced chip friction and better resistance to high temperatures. Wedge clamps provide more secure insert locking and feature internal air coolant channels that ensure optimum chip evacuation and heat control. The metric range includes cutter bodies with RP 1204 for facing and pocketing in diameters from 32 to 50 mm. Cutters with RN 1207 and RN 1204 for facing are available in diameters from 32 to 125 mm. The imperial range includes diameters 2.0″, 2.5″ and 3.0″.
