New grooving, slotting and parting-off system

MaxiMill-Slot-SX is the new grooving, slotting and parting-off system from Ceratizit, where through-coolant capability provides the highest levels of process security and optimum performance, even for diameters as large as 250 mm.

Ceratizit developed MaxiMill-Slot-SX, based on existing grooving inserts from its SX system, making it suitable for use on almost all materials in the ISO P, M, K, N and S categories. As for tool holders, customers can select from standard DIN connections, threads or shell mill adapters, ensuring the cutters are compatible with all machining centres, milling machines and turning centres.

Key to the development of MaxiMill-Slot SX is the addition of internal coolant supply up to cutter diameter 250 mm. Swarf control is vital in these applications, meaning through-coolant brings significant advantages. Potential damage to the cutter or component is eliminated, extending tool life, along with time savings gained by not having to remove swarf from grooves by hand. These issues are compounded the deeper a slot or parting-off operation goes.

One other aspect of MaxiMill-Slot SX that Ceratizit says elevates it above its competitors is its ease of insert changes. Simple handling is essential to smooth changeovers and here the MaxiMill – Slot SX makes use of Ceratizit’s patented SX clamping key when changing inserts. The lever design of the SX clamping key reduces insert change times while ensuring the correct clamping force, thus eliminating the risk of over tightening, stressing or deforming the insert seat, guaranteeing that the insert is secure in a precise and stable position.
