The CoroMill® Plura HD solid end mills are Sandvik Coromant's first choice andoptimized solution for heavy-duty applications up to 2×D in steel and stainless steel, providing safe and efficient solid end milling. With the new Zertivo™ 2.0 coated grades, tool life, process security, and productivity are further improved.

Antti Wikström, Global Product Manager, Solid end mills at Sandvik Coromant, said, "With Zertivo™ 2.0, we apply our comprehensive knowledge in coating technologies to our solid round tools. This gives us an opportunity to offer unique, custom-made coatings that will handle our customers’ machining challenges with superior performance and tooling efficiency."

The new grades allow for 30% higher cutting speed recommendations in primary application areas ISO P and ISO M, as well as secondary materials ISO K and ISO S, due to their optimized flute shape, which provides effective chip evacuation. The grades designed for stainless steel machining come in two variants: one with internal coolant for improved temperature control and chip flow, and one without internal coolant.

The standard assortment offers diameters from 2–25 mm, a 2×D depth of cut, 4 to 5 teeth, and a ramping angle at 5° or 7°. Tailor Made® options are available within the Customized solutions range. Sandvik Coromant's new grades for CoroMill® Plura HD increase productivity without compromising tool life or process security.
