The versatility of the Multi-Cut carbide end mill with a roughing flute profile is demonstrated in P20 tool steel. The video clip shows a slotting, periphery milling and pocket milling application with the same end mill. The center cutting, NR roughing flute profile allows for plunge and side milling at extremely high feed rates.
Multi-Cut end mills are specifically designed for high-performance roughing operations. Due to variable spacing of flutes combined with the NR roughing profile vibrations, cutting forces are minimized and metal removal rates are maximized.
- Vibration dampening variable flute spacing
- 45˚ high helix flute design
- Stabilizing cutting edge geometry
- PVD applied TIAlN heat and wear resistant coating
Tools with a DUPLEX geometry are specially designed for high feed milling. The term DUPLEX comes from the Latin word meaning as much as "double" or "two-fold". DUPLEX end mills make it possible to do pocket milling and slot milling (2D) as well as complex 3D operations like copy or high-feed milling with one tool. The DUPLEX geometry is a ground double-radius geometry (DUPLEX geometry) which permits the highest feed rates with maximum axial depth-of-cut values.
