YG-1 Tool offers the Only One powdered metal composition (HSS-PM60) for its end mills, designed to provide high performance in unstable and “less-than-perfect” setups. A new coating is said to enhance the best features of end mills for difficult applications. Where rigidity is lost and catastrophic failure is common, this technology is said to offer better toughness than high speed steel (HSS) and cobalt, while maintaining similar wear resistance to solid carbide. Improved edge strength, sharpness and durability make Only One a good choice for high-temperature nickel-based alloys like Inconel. To accommodate difficult and unstable machining conditions without the cost of solid carbide, Only One tools are offered in roughing, finishing, variable-helix, center-cutting, ballnose, long and short geometries.
