SC milling cutters.
Our Expert for hardened steel.

The H&V Expert hard machining milling cutters have been specially designed and developed to meet the requirements of hardened steel. Selected ultra-fine-grain substrate, proven geometries, coordinated edge preparation and the blue coating, which has been known for years, form the perfect synergy for safe machining of hardened steels up to 70 HRC.


The original blue coating for hard machining, often imitated but never achieved.


Cutting edge preparation that has been tried and tested for decades and optimised to perfection.


Solid carbide specially developed for hardened steels.

Helical pitch

Extremely soft cut at up to 70 HRC.


Radius and brow geometries optimized to prevent premature breakouts.


Refined geometry for reliable chip disposal and consistently high process reliability.
