Emuge’s line of end mills features a geometry designed for the high-performance machining of the turbine and bladed components. The end mills are said to offer cycle time reductions and long tool life in forms and materials including titanium, nickel alloys, aluminum alloys and more.

The end mills includes a range of taper ball tools that feature a sub-micro grain carbide substrate and an HA cylindrical shank. The 3-degree, 4-degree, 6-degree and 8-degree taper ball tools have two and three flute designs, and the 17.5-degree has three flutes. Polished flutes in the tools enable chip evacuation in aluminum alloys.

The taper torus end mills include 3-degree, 4-degree, 6-degree and 8-degree sizes featuring two polished flutes, sub-micro grain carbide and have a “cupped” radius design. The cutting flutes are tapered on a long 8-degree torus option for a range of designs from 5 to 15 flutes. 

The line of end mills includes a torus long-length tool style which features variable flute spacing for low vibration milling. The tools are available in designs ranging from 5 to 9 flutes and have a corner radii ranging from 1 mm to 2 mm. These end mills are all TiAlN-coated and include a coolant-through capability.

Coating options for the milling tools include ALCR for additional tool life in titanium alloys, high-temperature alloys, stainless steel and aluminum alloys, and TiAlN for heat and abrasion resistance in a range of materials such as stainless steel, steel alloys, cast iron and other ferrous metals.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Drill And Bore With A Face Mill

    Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.

  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.
