A History of Innovation and Quality

Extensive field-testing has proven these tools consistently outlast the competition as much as 2 to 1 in feed rate and tool life. With over 280 variations including square end and multiple corner radii, along with the choice of stub, standard, long and extra long flute lengths, it is the most complete offering available in the industry today. Their unique Helipitchä flute geometry design allows for increased feeds and speeds while reducing harmonics. For extended tool life the TuffCut® XR is coated with ALtima®, M. A. Ford’s exclusive AlTiN coating. Size range: 1/8 – 1 inch and 3 – 25 mm.

New from M.A. Ford®,is the TuffCut® X-AL, 3 flute solid carbide high performance end mills, for extreme aluminum milling. Three flutes provide a smooth cutting action at very aggressive feed rates.
