New Face Milling Insert: HNKX 0604-45

Face Milling is the most common Milling Operation and it is largely applied in many different types of Industries (Automotive, Aerospace, Mold and Die, …). It has a wide variety of applications, from light to heavy. The mostly used milling cutter is the 45° approach angle due to the balance between reduced vibration risks and chip thinning effect, which increases productivity.
