Conical Ballnose Engraving Tools for Standard and Reverse 3D Engraving Applications Are Now Available. News Release: Friday, September 21, 2007 12:00pm EST Source 2L inc. - Hudson, Massachusetts - 2L inc. announced today that it is accepting orders for its' high performance, Conical Ballnose Engraving Tools. The Conical Ballnose Engraving Tool offers dual functionality. It may be used for standard engraving projects and for 3D profiling and surface machining. "Testing has demonstrated that the 2L Conical Ballnose Engraving Tool can withstand higher cutting forces than standard Ballnose Endmills or tapered Ballnose Endmills," noted the company spokesman. "For example, a 0.010" Radius Conical Ballnose Engraving Tool was able to withstand plunging 0.010" deep at 55,000 RPM and 300 IPM in aluminum and make at least 200 passes over the surface while a similar diameter standard tapered Ballnose Endmills broke almost immediately." "This added strength makes the tool ideal for today's demanding 3D profile work in difficult to machine materials," added the spokesman. "Machining numerous passes at small depths of cut and high speeds yields products with fine surface finishes that would be unobtainable using standard tools." Conical Ballnose Engraving Tools are similar in style to the well known and used Standard Conical Engraving Tool, but with a radius tip which produces a cut with a rounded bottom. The tools are available in shank diameters of 1/8", 11/64", 3/16" and 1/4" with lengths varying from 2" - 6.5", Tip Radius of .005", .010" & .020" and included angles of 30 and 60 degrees. The Conical Ballnose Engraving Tool can be used with the patented 2L Spring Loaded Engraving Toolholder, CNC milling machines, Hand Held Engraving Machines, and Industrial Marking Equipment. The 2L Engraving and Cutting Tool product line continues to grow, offering a wide variety of high quality, precision made solid carbide engraving, cutting, milling, and burnishing tools.
