LMT Onsrud LP is launching a new endmill series designed to meet the toughest challenges of machining Inconel and other nickel-based materials. Configured in 7-, 9- or 11-flute options, the HXR series endmill line delivers fast material-removal rates and has been developed for low radial and higher axial engagement for high-efficiency machining (HEM).
Longer tool lengths incorporate a chipbreaker design to enhance chip removal, increasing tool performance. This tooling series is also ENDURASpeed coated for greater tool life and performance.
