Ceratizit USA, part of the Ceratizit Group, headquartered in Schaumburg, Illinois, has announced the launch of a new additively manufactured indexable insert milling system, the MaxiMill – 211-DC. Developed specifically for heat-resistant materials, such as titanium and other super alloys, the MaxiMill – 211-DC includes an advanced coolant supply made possible through the use of Additive Manufacturing.

The Additive Manufacturing process allows the patented shoulder mill to funnel the maximum amount of coolant directly on the insert flanks, providing process reliability when machining heat-resistant superalloys.

The MaxiMill – 211-DC is reported to offer 60% longer tool life compared to tools with standard cooling. Further, despite the complexity of the coolant holes inside the tool body, the MaxiMill- 211-DC is compatible with standard adapters with through-coolant supply without requiring any standard coolant on the chip breaker.

“We put Additive Manufacturing to work for our customers and to achieve results that are only possible when we push boundaries,” stated Dan Cope, President of the Americas for Ceratizit Group. “Titanium and other super alloys are unconventional materials that require unconventional strategies.”
