The NuMaxHF line of new hi-feed milling tools from Ingersoll Cutting tools offers extreme ramping capabilities versus traditional hi-feed milling tools. The thick tangential insert features a unique diamond shape with a large inboard angle providing the highest feed-rates and steepest ramping angles.
The insert pocket is designed with dovetailed seating over a large contact area, which extends cutting edge life, cutter body life cycle, stability, and support under the most aggressive cutting conditions. Inserts are offered in 2 styles: economical pressed complete and a precision ground profile. NuMaxHF inserts are offered in the latest carbide grades with post-coat treatment technology applied at Ingersoll's in-house facility.

gang cutting ( milling)
Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.
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.
