Tech Tip: Insert Screw Maintenance

Friendly reminder: don't forget about the little guy who holds it all together. We spend so much time discussing the design and engineering of the milling cutter and inserts that we often overlook the importance of the insert screws holding them together. This small factor plays a key role in the performance of the milling cutter. This is a wear component, every time the screw is tightened down the threads are stretched out. After a while, the threads become distorted leading to bigger issues. In light applications, you may not have to replace these screws for weeks or months, but when using tools like the HARVI™ ULTRA 8X here the screws are recommended to be exchanged every time you replace the insert.
