New Fast Feed Milling Indexable Small-Size Tools

ISCAR is expanding its range of advantageous Fast Feed milling products by introducing a new family of indexable small-size cutters in the diameter range of .375-.625”

The new cutters have been designed to replace solid carbide endmills, providing the advantages of indexable tools to deliver an excellent cost benefit solution.
The new family, MICRO3FEED, is intended for productive rough milling compact parts, smallin- size cavities, pockets, etc., at high feed rates. MICRO3FEED should be applied in die & mold making and the manufacture of miniature parts and small components, among other applications. The new family is ideal for use in low power machining centers and turn-milling machine tools.

  • The cutters carry single-sided trigon inserts with three cutting edges
  • Maximal depth of cut .024”
  • 17° cutting edge angle
  • Positive rake angle
  • Ramping-down capability
  • Coolant holes directed to each individual cutting edge, for an efficient coolant supply through the cutter body

The new MICRO3FEED cutters are available in the following configurations:
  • FFT3 EFM endmills in .375, .500 and .625” diameters
  • FFT3 EFM-MM endmill heads with MULTI-MASTER threaded connection in .394, .472 and .630” diameters

The cutters carry FFT3 WXMT 030206 inserts that are secured by a central clamping screw.
The inserts are available in two carbide grades for machining different workpiece materials:
  • ISO P (steel, ferritic and martensitic stainless steel)
  • ISO K (cast iron)
  • ISO S (high temperature alloys)
  • ISO H (hardened steel and cast iron)

Radius for programming of FFT3 EFM…-03 is .043”

Recommended Machining Conditions for FFT3-03 Fast Feed Endmills
* ISCAR material group in accordance with VDI 3323 standard
** Quenched and tempered
For machining in unstable conditions, the recommended cutting data should be reduced by 20-30%

Application Range FFT3-03
