iphone app for Nexus milling products

Check out our cool, new iPhone app for the Nexus cutting tool line. The app helps save time and eliminate confusion when selecting cutting tools, inserts, and machining parameters.

The app is available as a free download from the iPhone app store. Just search for “Techniks” in the app store.


& Insert Data
The app provides important product descriptions, dimensional data and recommended insert choice for Nexus face mills and indexable end mills.  
Included is an insert wear characteristics problem / solution guide for a variety of milling issues including breakage, build-up, cratering, plastic deformation, thermal cracking, and notch wear.
Speeds & Feeds
Once the correct cutter body and workpiece material has been selected, the app will provide the correct inserts as well as suggested feeds and speeds data including SFM, FPT, and DOC.  
Also included is an integrated machinist’s calculator for common calculations such as RPM, SFM, IPM, and FPT.
Operators can change the machining parameters and the app will let them know if any of the parameters fall outside the optimal working conditions for a particular tool or insert.  
A version that includes Nexus turning tools data and suggested machining parameters is planned for release later this year.
