SwiftCarb offers its XT7 RampMill seven-flute end mill, with an end geometry that enables helical ramp engagement to 8 degrees in steel and exotic metals. The center hole delivers coolant or air to blast chips away, eliminating re-cutting operations and dramatically increasing tool life, according to the company. The mill’s truncated radius adds corner strength and avoids the wear points of a traditional radius.

    One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
