Cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has unveiled a high-feed version of the CoroMill 745 face milling cutter, featuring a 25° entering angle for additional productivity gains when milling steel and cast iron workpieces. The high-feed version facilitates even higher metal removal rates (MRR) in applications with depths of cut up to 2.8mm (0.110").

Despite the elevated MRR and productivity, there is no compromise to surface finish when using the new, high-feed CoroMill 745. A light cutting action from the innovative insert positioning provides excellent chip formation, a smooth, soft sound, and low power consumption.

The CoroMill 745 with a 25° entering angle uses the same inserts as its counterpart cutter with a 42° entering angle.

The high-feed CoroMill 745 is aimed at roughing to semi-finishing face milling operations on machining centers and multi-task machines. With its multi-edge design, the tool is particularly suitable for large batch production, flexible transfer lines, and when maximum tool utilization is important, especially when milling components made from ISO P or ISO K materials.

The presence of a short (0.6mm, 0.024") parallel land ensures a good surface finish. The large screw ensures easy handling, while the insert position and the heptagonal insert shape make clamping secure for reliable face milling operations. Internal coolant is available for all cutters that range from 63mm to 160mm (2.5" to 6.0").
