This series of two-, three- and four-flute carbide metric end mills has a slightly increased flute and overall length, which allows for regrinding. Engineered with various corner radii per cutting diameter, the AECM series is useful for heavier cuts in medium-to-hard materials. The end mills are supplied with AlTiN coating.
Cutter diameters ranging from 1 mm to 12 mm, with shank diameters of 4 mm to 12 mm are available. Corner radii range from 0.1 mm to 1.5 mm as sizes increase. The TIR maximum is 0.012 mm.
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.
