Emuge’s solid carbide micro end mills feature a geometrically optimized cutting edge combined with a slim, concave, tapered neck to provide flexible milling solutions in a variety of materials, from 66 Rc hardened steel to graphite. The tools are available in cutting diameters ranging from 0.2 to 2 mm (0.008" to 0.080"), with length-to-diameter ratios of 2.2:1, 5:1 and 10:1.
The end mills are suited for milling injection molds and extrusion dies, or graphite and copper electrodes. They also are capable of high-precision surface structuring of macroscopic components as well as micro-mechanical parts production.
The line of micro end mills includes ballnose, torus and flat-end styles, uncoated or with TiAlN coating. Diamond coating also is available.
Can 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.
