Emuge has introduced its Cut & Form solid carbide finishing end mills, designed to perform both cutting and polishing in one operation. The tools’ dual functionality is attributed to a design that incorporates three cutting edges to remove material and three burnishing edges to compact the material, producing polished mirror surfaces as fine as 0.08 micron Ra. The tool series is designed to speed throughput and cut back on manufacturing time, secondary operations and cost.

These high-performance tools are ideal for trimming 2D contours in nonferrous materials, such as aluminum and copper, and for the medical, jewelry, food and electronics industries, the company says.

Emuge Cut & Form end mills are available in stub- and standard-length designs, with cutting diameters of 6, 8, 10 and 12 mm.
