Carbide Corner Radius End Mills
SINGLE END CARBIDE END MILLS WITH CORNER RADIUS
One of the main benefits of using corner radius carbide end mills is that they can withstand higher cutting speeds and feed rates than their sharp-edged counterparts. This is due to the fact that the curved edge distributes the cutting force over a larger area, reducing the amount of stress on the tool and extending its lifespan.
In addition to their durability, corner radius carbide end mills are also highly versatile. They can be used for a wide range of applications, including roughing, finishing, and contouring operations. The curved edge of the tool allows for smoother and more precise cuts, which is especially important when working with harder materials such as stainless steel, titanium, and hardened steels.
Another advantage of using corner radius carbide end mills is their ability to reduce the amount of chatter or vibration that can occur during cutting. This is because the curved edge of the tool helps to reduce the contact area between the tool and the workpiece, which in turn reduces the amount of heat generated during cutting.
Overall, corner radius carbide end mills are an excellent choice for any machining operation that requires high-speed cutting, precise contouring, and improved tool life. Whether you're a professional machinist or a DIY enthusiast, these tools are sure to provide you with the performance and quality you need to achieve your machining goals.
