Mill 4-12 Tangential Shoulder Milling Tool Data Available on MachiningCloud

Product data for Kennametal’s Mill 4-12KT Tangential Shoulder Milling Tool is now available for download in MachiningCloud, providing an array of options for both steel and cast iron applications. The Mill 4-12KT reduces horsepower by 15%, boosts feed rates, and allows easy access to insert locking screws. The triangular shaped insert dramatically increases stability and cutting performance – even on smaller machines. Available in either coarse or medium pitch cutting options, Mill 4-12KT shoulder mill tools offering both a stronger cutter body and stronger cutting edges thanks to its patented tangential design.

The Mill 4-12KT is ideal for dry rouging to finishing applications and improves overall cost-per-part (CPP) with a 20% increase in chip load per tooth. As a result, tool costs are reduced and surface finishes are improved without compromising tool life. Since there are less inserts per load required on the Mill 4-12KT, better repeatability can be achieved. The Mill 4-12KT features 7 grades, 7 corner radii, an internal coolant supply, and a depth-of-cut range of up to 12 mm (.472”). Mill 4-12KT inserts can be radially or tangentially mounted, allowing machinists to produce both large and shallow pockets.
