The company has introduced its Micro-Decimal end mills, which start at 0.005" diameter through 0.06" in one thousandths increments. Also available are tools in 0.065" to 0.12" sizes, available in 0.05" increments. All of these tools are manufactured to exacting standards from what is said to be the highest quality micro-carbide substrate. Off-the-shelf standards include two and four flute; square and ball end; single, double end and stub; and regular and long lengths.
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.
