Product Description:- 3-3 Shank Milling Cutter
Features of our Endmill Cutter
Flutes - Spiral cutting edge on the end mill. 2 and 4 flute end mills are the most commonly used.
2-Flute - Allows maximum space for chip ejection. Used for general milling operations.
3-Flute - Excellent for slotting. Used for general milling operations.
4, 5, 6, and 8 Flute - A greater number of flutes reduces chip load and can improve surface finish, if feed rate remains the same.
- Ball End - Used to mill die cavities and fillets, round bottom holes and slots.
- Carbide - This tool material combines increased stiffness with the ability to operate at higher SFPM. Carbide tools are best suited for shops operating newer milling machines or machines with minimal spindle wear. Rigidity is critical when using carbide tools. Carbide end mills may require a premium price over the cobalt end mills, but they can also be run at speeds 2 1/2 faster than HSS end mills. For best results mount in a hydraulic type holder.
- Coatings - The use of Titanium coated tools will increase the surface hardness of the tool to near 85 Rc. This will allow for greater tool life at increased cutting speeds & feeds (15 - 25%). Melin offers Titanium Nitride (TiN), Aluminum Titanium Nitride (AlTiN), and Titanium Carbonitride (TiCN).
- Cobalt - Type of high speed steel tool which has a 8% cobalt content (M42). This material has excellent abrasion resistance for improved tool life over standard high speed steel (M7).
- Corner Radius - Conventional end mill with radius ground on the tips of the flutes to help reduce chipping on the tip. For mold applications, radius tools can remove more material faster than ball ends.
- Corner Rounders - Cutters having form ground radius with relieved clearance.
- High Helix - Usually a 40 to 60 degree spiral on the tool's flutes. Effective for rapid chip ejection in milling of aluminum and other materials.
