Kennametal announces its new Mill 4-12KT, the next generation of tangential shoulder mills producing high quality floor surface finishes for nearly all steel and cast iron applications.

The Mill 4-12KT uses15% lower cutting forces, an important consideration with today’s lighter-duty, 40-taper machine tools. This allows customers to feed faster without putting additional stress on the spindle. And in long overhang situations or where the part fixturing is less than optimal, lower forces equate to less chatter, reduced edge chipping, and smoother surface finishes.

Mill 4-12KT has tangentially mounted inserts with four cutting edges per insert for reduced tooling costs. Seven corner radii from 0.016" (0.4 mm) to 0.122" (3.1 mm) are available, along with coolant-through, medium and coarse pitch cutter bodies 2" (50mm) to 8" (200mm) in diameter.

With an axial depth of cut range from 0.019" to 0.472" (0.5 to 12mm), Mill 4-12KT covers most shoulder milling applications.
