The new CERATIZIT 9-mm MaxiMill 491 insert has eight usable cutting edges, a precise 90°profile, and a nickel-coated tool body.

New Insert Size Maximizes Productivity and Versatility

Dec. 15, 2022
The MaxiMill 491 system simplifies quick insert changes while the tool remains in the machine, reducing downtime while maintaining stable and smooth cutting thanks to a nickel-based alloy coating.

CERATIZIT’s new MaxiMill 491 – part of its Indexable Milling line of products – has eight usable cutting edges per newly expanded 9-mm insert size, a precise 90°profile, and a durable nickel-coated tool body, making it well suited for all shoulder and full-slot milling applications.

The MaxiMill 491 system is easy to use, so users can exchange inserts quickly while the tool remains in the machine. This significantly reduces machine downtime while the precision-ground inserts deliver stable and smooth cutting thanks to CERATIZIT’s Dragonskin coating technology. Dragonskin coating also gives the inserts added strength for even the most demanding of machining conditions.

Configured with a positive insert geometry, the MaxiMill 491 ensures excellent surface quality and dramatically increases tool life.

The tool’s eight usable insert cutting edges provide a low price per edge for cost effectiveness.

CERATIZIT initially launched the MaxiMill 491 in a 12-mm size with a nominal diameter range from 32 to 160-mm diameters, and a corner radius of 0.8 mm. It extended the range with the addition of 1.2-mm, 1.6-mm and 2.0-mm corner radii.

Now, the new 9-mm insert size now brings even greater flexibility for all applications. With this smaller size, more inserts can be mounted in the tools for even longer tool life and higher chip removal rates. The new size also reduces power consumption, making the MaxiMill 491 effective for use with lower power machine tools.
