Product Portfolio
  • Indexable inserts

  • Your success with AVANTEC milling cutters
    … is the result of a perfect combination of numerous factors. We constantly optimize and improve the micro-geometrics of our indexable inserts, test new finishing processes and different substrates.
    In addition to material-related experiments, we conduct tests in which we machine select work pieces with different milling strategies. Only the best combinations are approved for serial production.
