There are several variables that go into choosing the correct insert for your milling operations: the specific cutter body being used (milling cutter series), the type of machining operation (toolpath type), the cutting-edge angle (lead angle), the depth of cut, the materials being cut, and more. Use the filters on the left-hand side below to narrow down your choices, and find the inserts you need.
Milling Cutter Series: Filter by the Haas Milling Cutter Series to find all the inserts available for that specific cutter. If you don’t know the cutter series (or have a non-Haas cutter body), you can also filter by insert style (shape), or ANSI designation.
Material Type: Filter by primary workpiece material to find the inserts that are best suited for that specific material. You can also then filter by secondary workpiece material to find inserts that will cut multiple materials.
Depth of Cut: The maximum depth of cut (DOC) for a specific insert. The maximum DOC is affected by many variables, and may not be achievable under all conditions.
Toolpath Type: Face milling, shoulder milling, slotting, ramping, helical milling copy milling, plunge milling, etc.
Lead Angle: 90°, 45°, 15°, 11° – determined by the cutter body.
