Ceratizit will be presenting for the first time its Ceratizit 3x3 concept at the AMB international metalworking exhibition, taking place in Stuttgart from 13–17 September.

The company will be also showcasing its MaxiMill 491 90° shoulder milling system, launched in April 2016, along with its cermet grade COLORSTAR TM CTEP110 and the MaxiDrill 900 insert drill, as well as carbide grades and blanks for the production of solid carbide tools and shanks.


The 'Ceratizit 3x3' concept is designed to offer a portfolio to make it easier for customers to choose the most economical solution, the company said.

MaxiMill 491 reportedly offers ease of handling and improved performance with eight cutting edges per insert producing profiles of exactly 90°. ‘Compared to the products of its competitors, the MaxiMill 491 has a very attractive price per cutting edge,’ said Mario Wolf, milling product manager. The tool changing times can be reduced as the system is suitable for both roughing and finishing.
