Tue, 07/15/2008 - 4:33am
An innovative, geometrically optimized cutting edge combined with a slim, concave, tapered neck provide flexible, high-performance milling solutions in a wide variety of materials from 66 Rc hardened steel to graphite. The tools are offered in cutting diameters from 0.2 mm (0.008") to 2 ,, (0.80"), with effective cutting length-to-diameter ratios of 2.2:1, 5:1, and 10:1. Tools are ideal for milling injection molds and extrusion dies, or graphite and copper electrodes. They are also well suited for high-precision surface structuring of macroscopic components as well as micro-mechanical parts production. The extensive line includes ball nose, torus, and flat end styles and are available in 24 different designs.
