MEV & MFLN - milling cutter

New tangential milling cutters, multifunctional MEV and heavy milling cutter MFLN.

Tangential shoulder face mill for multiple applications – MEV Kyocera has added the MEV tangential cutter series to its wide milling products portfolio. The MEV is a 90° cutter, featuring several benefits like high rigidity by higher web thickness than conventional cutters and low cutting force due to axial rake angle of max. 17°. Various machining is possible like ramping with positive type inserts. The advanced cutting performance can be noticed by excellent finish bottom and squareness of the tooled workpiece, backed up with long tool life.


Tangential face mill for heavy milling – MFLN
A further enhancement of the milling cutter portfolio is the new heavy milling cutter MFLN. Kyocera´s high efficiency cutter is capable for high DOC and high feed. It offers three cutter styles in order to cover a wide variety of machining applications (cutting edge angles of 90°, 75°, and 45°). The MFLN reduces chattering and prevent sudden insert fracture due to low cutting force design and wide contact face of insert. The tangentially mounted inserts with 22 mm of length are offering increased rigidity and provide 2 cutting edges on both sides. Together with Kyocera´s original PVD coating technology MEGACOAT NANO, you can except long tool life.





Newly developed triangular inserts providing low cutting force and increased toolholder rigidity. High performance, economical, and multi-functional milling solutions.




MEV milling cutter
