Scientific Cutting Tools’ helical chamfer mills are said to feature free cutting and leave a smooth finish. The variable helical flute design provides sheer, reduced side cutting pressure and improved chip evacuation, enabling high-performance. Made from premium sub-micron carbide, the tools are manufactured in both three-flute and five-flute versions to address a variety of materials.

The three-flute design is especially useful for softer materials while the five-flute design is said to perform well on harder materials. Helical chamfer mills are made on CNC tool and cutter grinders to exact tolerances. Sizes range from 1/8" to ¾" cutter diameters, and come in 60, 90 and 120 degree included angle configurations. The front of the tool is ground flat and the tip diameter is held to ±0.002" tolerance to enable accuracy in programming. In addition, the small tip diameters enable maximum machining flexibility. These cutters are available either with or without AITiN+ coating.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
