37-degree helix provides efficient chip evacuation required to machine aluminum and other nonferrous materials Three flutes provide a finer finish than two flutes, reducing the need for a second finishing cut in some applications Rounded area behind the cutting edge (cylindrical land) stabilizes the tool in the cut and leaves a smooth finish on the workpiece Low surface-roughness on the cutting…

Number of flutes varies; fewer flutes have more chip-carrying capacity and more flutes produce a finer finish High-speed steel is compatible with a variety of materials Uncoated (bright) tools have no additional surface treatment or coating for use on a broad range of materials Square nose end mills (also called square end) create sharp, unrounded cuts Center-cutting design allows the end mill to…

Roughing end mills have chip-breaking cutting edges that remove material in less time than conventional end mills Fine-pitch tooth design is suitable for machining high-temperature alloys Titanium carbon nitride (TiCN) coating lubricates the end mill for high-temperature stability and offers better abrasion resistance than TiN coating Square end creates sharp, unrounded cuts and has a corner…

Roughing end mills have chip-breaking cutting edges that remove material in less time than conventional end mills 20-degree helix provides more cutting-edge strength than higher helix angles to efficiently machine steel and stainless steel Titanium aluminum nitride (TiAlN) coating lubricates the end mill for high-temperature stability and abrasion resistance at high cutting speeds, offering better…

Number of flutes varies; fewer flutes have more chip-carrying capacity and more flutes produce a finer finish Cobalt steel resists abrasion and high cutting temperatures, and has higher feed rates than high-speed steel Uncoated (bright) tools have no additional surface treatment or coating for use on a broad range of materials Square nose end mills (also called square end) create sharp, unrounded…

Four flutes produce a better finish than fewer flutes Square nose end mills (also called square end) create sharp, unrounded cuts Carbide can run at higher speeds than high-speed steel, resisting abrasion and high cutting temperatures Uncoated (bright) tools have no additional surface treatment or coating for use on a broad range of materials Center-cutting design allows the end mill to plunge…

Two flutes offer better chip-carrying capacity than end mills with more flutes, enhancing the tool’s ability to remove material High-speed steel (HSS) is compatible with a variety of materials Uncoated (bright) tools have no additional surface treatment or coating for use on a broad range of materials Square nose end mills (also called square end) create sharp, unrounded cuts Center-cutting design…

Two flutes offer better chip-carrying capacity than end mills with more flutes, enhancing the tool’s ability to remove material Titanium aluminum nitride (TiAlN) coating lubricates the end mill for high-temperature stability and abrasion resistance at high cuttings speeds, offering better heat resistance than TiN and TiCN coatings Carbide can run at higher speeds than high-speed steel, resisting…
