ATI Stellram’s XE solid carbide end mill is designed to slot and profile to higher radial and axial engagements, and run at higher surface speeds and feeds in difficult-to-machine materials. The tool is designed to run fast and cool. Also, through-tool coolant and a deep-flute design evacuate chips more efficiently. The tool’s longer shaft maximizes clamping and reach, and it helps minimize vibration. The end mill is manufactured from a submicron substrate and is coated with PVD Nano TiAlN.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
