FM10 PNMU Face Milling Indexable Inserts

August 04, 2021
FM10 PNMU Series Features 10 True Cutting Edges

Global machine-tool powerhouse YG-1 is ready to market its newest innovation – FM10 PNMU face milling indexable inserts – combining multi-corner face milling performance with high-feed capabilities.

The advanced design of YG-1’s FM10 PNMU inserts separates the cutting edge and the wiper, resulting in 10 true cutting edges.

Another feature – the 36⁰ entry angle – successfully generates thinner chips, providing operators higher feed capabilities. The curved cutting ridge and wiper design is engineered to reduce cutting forces and directs these forces axially along the strength of the machining center into the spindle. These advantages, taken together, optimize operational stability to provide users superior surface finishes and greater productivity. 

FM10 PNMU cutters and inserts are recommended for milling in steel and cast iron. Now available in the U.S. and Canada, this YG-1 platform can be ordered in diameters of 2 to 4 inches. YG-1 is developing an expanded range of diameters as well as extending the line for face milling in stainless and other materials. 

YG-1 and done. That’s our pledge of performance and a source of pride. Because YG-1 is committed to your success and satisfaction. Only YG-1 gives you the tools to simplify and streamline your cutting tool requirements with a single-source supplier of performance and value.

Related Glossary Terms

  • feed


    Rate of change of position of the tool as a whole, relative to the workpiece while cutting.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • machining center

    machining center

    CNC machine tool capable of drilling, reaming, tapping, milling and boring. Normally comes with an automatic toolchanger. See automatic toolchanger.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.

  • wiper


    Metal-removing edge on the face of a cutter that travels in a plane perpendicular to the axis. It is the edge that sweeps the machined surface. The flat should be as wide as the feed per revolution of the cutter. This allows any given insert to wipe the entire workpiece surface and impart a fine surface finish at a high feed rate.
