OSG’s Exocarb Aero UVX variable index and variable helix end mills couple positive edge geometry with a variable helix design. The end mills can achieve more consistent, chatter-free milling versus common variable-design end mills, the company says. A newly designed flute shape with a smooth finish is said to further improve chip evacuation, thereby improving stability in slotting applications involving stainless steel, titanium and Inconel. Diameters range from 1/8" to 1", and corner radii range from 0.010" to 0.125".
