*This press release was issued on November 13, 2014 in Japan.
Sumitomo Electric Industries has expanded the "WFX08000" model (maximum cutting depth of 6.0mm) for use in small depth of cut for the "SEC-WaveMill WFX12000" model indexable shoulder cutter, which has received high acclaim for its high quality machining. Sales will be launched in December 2014.
In recent years, the industrial machinery market, which is centered on machine tools and energy-related equipment, has been exhibiting steady growth in conjunction with the economic development of emerging countries. Reduction of machining costs and consolidation of processes are required in all fields. Additionally, with the higher performance of finished products, the dimensional accuracy and machining quality required of industrial machinery components are becoming increasingly stricter year after year, so the requirements for improved surface roughness and wall surface accuracy with respect to machining tools are also increasing. p>
In order to meet these needs, Sumitomo Electric Industries has expanded the "WFX08000" model of SEC-WaveMills to supplement the "WFX12000" model released in 2011. The repertoire of the "WFX08000" model supports small to medium diameters and various numbers of teeth, and is capable of high efficiency machining with multiple cutting edge. Additionally, the insert size has been reduced, contributing to lower tool costs for the insert.
