MonsterMill PCR – Our revolutionary plunge milling cutter range

Dive into a new world of milling and set standards with our MonsterMill PCR-UNI & MonsterMill PCR-ALU plunge milling cutters

Precise, powerful and extremely efficient – delve into a new world of milling with the MonsterMill PCR. The revolutionary plunge milling cutter is particularly suitable for machining steel, stainless steels, cast iron and non-ferrous metals. It is available in short and long overall lengths. The HB shank type ensures secure clamping and high process security. This tool also boasts a corner radius that has been specially adapted for milling keyways.

Features & benefits of the MonsterMill PCR product line!

  • Optimum chip clearance during ramping and drilling: the special core geometry ensures optimum chip evacuation and prevents chip jams.
  • Extremely quiet running during HPC milling: the irregular pitch of the cutting edges and irregular helix angle counteract vibrations to ensure a stable and precise machining process.
  • High feed rates thanks to four cutting edges delivers maximum performance and reduces machining times.
  • Vibration-free ramping and drilling: the special, patented centring tip ensures maximum precision.
  • Latest coating technology guarantees maximum tool life
  • Cutting length of up to 3xDC ensures highest productivity and economic efficiency

Machining using the MonsterMill PCR

  • Quick centring for drilling holes in angled surfaces
  • Simple procedure through guide boring (drilling process)
  • Special centring tip for guiding the drill

Conventional machining

  • Helical milling of a guide hole
  • Ramping angle (usually 3°)

With the PCR, you can increase the ramping angle up to 25°, increasing efficiency in the process

Completed hole

Summary
100 holes Ø 10 
Conventional: 25 min. 
PCR: 8 min. 

The MonsterMill PCR dramatically reduces machining times compared to conventional tools!
