The tool’s strength makes it ideal for 3D-profile work in difficult-to-machine materials, the company says. Machining numerous passes at small depths of cut and high speeds yields products with fine surface finishes. The conical ballnose engraving tools are similar in style to the standard conical engraving tool, but with a radius tip that produces a cut with a rounded bottom.
The tools are available in shank diameters of 1/8", 11/64", 3/16" and 1/4" with lengths varying from 2" to 6.5". The tip radius measures 0.005", 0.01" and 0.02" and included angles of 30 and 60 degrees.
