Kennametal video Tech Tip #6 - Indexable Milling Lead Angle and Depth of Cut

Jun 15, 2020 2:47:17 PM by H&C Team

When choosing a lead angle for your indexable mill, it’s important to remember that it will affect the tool’s depth of cut capability. If the insert size remains the same, your depth of cut will change when the lead angle changes. For example, if you use the same insert size in a 90° application and a 45° application, the depth of cut will decrease in the 45° application due to the insert sitting at a steeper angle.
