SGS Tool Co. has expanded its S-Carb line to include a new ballnose geometry, additional corner radius and reach options, and larger diameters. The S-Carb high-performance end mills are designed for aggressive aluminum, nonferrous and nonmetallic machining applications requiring a high level of material removal. The S-Carb tooling line is said to reduce cycle time in applications such as aerospace structure components; automotive performance wheels, housings, and transmissions; nonferrous mold cavities; and aluminum components used in firearms and weaponry.

The three-flute series features a specialized flute to manage the size and volume of chips produced during aggressive machining. A long-reach neck design provides clearance to reach with short flutes for maximum rigidity. The new ballnose option is well-suited to machining workpieces with complex surfaces. The tools are available uncoated or coated with Ti-Namite-B (TiB2) high-performance coating for increased wear resistance and a lower coefficient of friction for extended tool life.
