End milling tools crafted from carbide are frequently used in the industrial sector to execute precise cuts. This type of cutting device can be made from metals like high speed steel, cobalt, or titanium and can come in a variety of shapes, such as square, ball, or corner radius.
End mills are essential tools used to cut shapes and create holes in a piece of metalwork. They achieve this result by cutting away material from the workpiece. Compared to traditional high speed steel end mills, our carbide mills retain their edge over an extended period of time and can be operated at higher cutting speeds. End mills with our company’s innovative carbide coating are available in uncoated, TiN, TiCN, and TiAlN options.
For general purpose applications, TiN-coated carbide end mills provide the perfect performance. But when intricate high-speed operations on tough components are necessary, the ideal solution is TiCN-coated carbide end mills. When the challenge is stainless steel or aluminum, TiAlN-coated carbide end mills really come to the fore.
An end mill’s size is based on two features: the diameter of its cutting edge and the length of its flutes. The cutting diameter measures the breadth of the slicing contour, while the length of the flutes gauges the total extent of its sharpened perimeter.
A Look at the Essential Sizes of Carbide End Mills
The size of an end mill is typically identified in inches, using the diameter of its cut and the length of its flutes as defining parameters.
Working with a broad range of materials across multiple machining operations? Carbide end mills are the perfect choice to help you finish the job efficiently. These cutters come in a range of shapes and sizes, enabling you to customize your work to maximize productivity and accuracy.
Employed to craft shapes and excavate holes in a material, end mills are usually strong enough for the job. But for tasks that demand more resilience, such as higher speeds and depths, Carbide end mills are the go-to. What’s more, these tools come with various coverings — ranging from untreated to Tin-coated, Titanium Carbon Nitride- and Titanium Aluminum Nitride-coated — that can now balance strength with resistance to wear.
TiN-coated carbide end mills are an excellent selection for a variety of machining applications, while TiCN-coated options are the best choice for speedy and tough cutting jobs. To maximize your productivity and accuracy when machining stainless steel or aluminum, TiAlN-coated carbide end mills are your go-to.
End mills come in a vast selection of sizes. By observing the length and width of the cutting edge, you can calculate the size of your end mill. The cutting diameter consists of the diameter of the sharp edge. Alternately, look at the length of the flutes which are part of the cutting edge.
When it comes to carbide end mills, there are a variety of standard sizes.
The diameter and flute length of an end mill are usually measured in inches.
Acting as a bridge between hand-held tools and industrial power tools, carbide end mills can perform an extensive range of machining operations, from slotting to drilling to milling. These highly valuable tools come in an array of sizes and profiles to satisfy the needs of any industrial context.
