Suitable for general-purpose machining on hardened and high-alloy steel, chromium-nickel steel, steel casting, malleable cast iron, brass, copper, aluminum with a high percentage of silicon, and abrasive plastic Four flutes produce a better finish than fewer flutes Carbide can run at higher speeds than high-speed or cobalt steel, resisting wear and high cutting temperatures Uncoated (bright) tools…

Corner radius end mills have cutting edges with rounded corners to reduce chipping and provide longer tool life Suitable for machining on alloy steel, tool steel, mold steel, and other high-hardened materials up to Rockwell hardness C70 Stub length increases the strength of the tool, making it less likely to break in the workpiece Four flutes produce a better finish than fewer flutes Titanium…

Roughing end mills have chip-breaking cutting edges that remove material in less time than conventional end mills Fine-pitch tooth design and tool geometry are suitable for machining on a range of materials Number of flutes varies by diameter for optimum feed and cut rate Cobalt steel resists abrasion and high cutting temperatures, and has higher feed rates than high-speed steel Uncoated (bright)…

Suitable for high-performance machining and finishing on materials such as carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, tool steel, and other high-hardened materials up to Rockwell hardness C70 Long-length end mills have longer cutting edges and can make deeper cuts than standard-length end mills 45-degree helix offers increased cutting action compared to end mills with lower helix angles Titanium…

Solid carbide tools offer long tool life and faster cutting speeds than other substrates, but are more brittle and must be used with rigid toolholding systems Titanium aluminum nitride coatings become self-lubricating when used at very high speeds, making them ideal for cutting without coolant (“dry machining”) Weldon shanks feature a round shank with one of more flats machined into the side for…

Suitable for high-performance plunging and machining on aluminum and other nonferrous materials 42-degree helix provides increased cutting action compared to end mills with lower helix angles Two flutes offer better chip-carrying capacity than end mills with more flutes, enhancing the tool’s ability to remove material Low surface roughness on the cutting edge reduces friction and prevents chips…

Suitable for general-purpose machining on hardened and high-alloy steel, chromium-nickel steel, steel casting, malleable cast iron, brass, copper, aluminum with a high percentage of silicon, and abrasive plastic Extra-long-length end mills have longer cutting edges and can make deeper cuts than long-length end mills Two flutes offer better chip-carrying capacity than end mills with more flutes,…

Suitable for general-purpose machining on steel, chromium-nickel steel, and cast iron Extra-long-length end mills have longer cutting edges and can make deeper cuts than long-length end mills 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…
