Features of Chain Headway AP06 End Mill Cutters

  • Integral Water Cooling Extends Tool Life
  • Increased Cutting Efficiency
  • Good for Interrupted Cutting

Integral Water Cooling Extends Tool Life

Micron Grade Tool Presetter
Water cooling reduces cutting heat temperature and assists chip removal from the cutting surface, extending tool life and improving surface finishes.

Increased Cutting Efficiency

Micron Grade Tool Presetter
Our designs feature multiple cutting edges to increase cutting efficiency. By adding cutting inserts as tool diameter increases, cutting efficiency is retained regardless of the size of the cutting tool.

Good for Interrupted Cutting

Low-resistance and high-precision designs are good for interrupted cutting operations as they improve the accuracy of cut and reduce the likelihood of errors.

MAS Mini End Mill Cutters

Micron Grade Tool Presetter
The Chain Headway range of MAS Mini End Mill Cutters are compatible with AP06 cutting inserts APKT060204-M02 and APKT060204-MT for cutting:

  • Alloyed Steels
  • Stainless Steels
  • Cast Iron

Available with cutting diameters from 10-40mm, shank sizes from 8-32mm and featuring between 2 and 10 cutting inserts depending on size, Chain Headway MAS Mini End Mill Cutters offer a flexible range of high-quality cutting tools with interchangeable cutting inserts.

Indexable Inserts Reduce Cost of End Mill

For production lines or mass production, using a MAS mini end mill cutter helps to reduce the cost of buying cutting tools compared to traditional disposable end mills. This is because MAS mini end mill cutters use cost-effective replaceable cutting inserts. Inserts are easily changed when they wear out. Because large disposable end mills are expensive, our customers can achieve significant savings, especially with cutting diameters over 16mm.

MAS Screw-On Mini End Mill Cutter

Micron Grade Tool Presetter

Featuring alloyed steel construction to increase cutting stability and tool life, MAS type screw-on mini end mill cutters are available in diameters from 10-40mm.
