End Mill Flute

The discharge of chips and rigidity of tools by the number of flutes

General milling cutter is divided into 2,3,4,5,6 and 7 flute end mill.
The number of flutes is one of the key factors that determine the function of the milling cutter. Generally, the number of flutes is small, and the chipping bag is large, which is easy to discharge debris. On the contrary, the section of the tool is small, the tool strength is small, and it is easy to vibrate. And the strength is high, but the shredder bag is small, the capacity of the debris is reduced, and it is easy to block the debris.
● The more the number of blade, the corresponding increase in the cutting area, can achieve higher feed speed and cutting efficiency
● Multi-edge milling heads can also reduce vibration & cutting forces, improve machining surface quality, reduce cutting temperature & extend tool life
● Too many edges may lead to a reduction in the amount of cutting per edge, reducing the efficiency of single-edge cutting.

The rigidity of tools by the length of the flute

The shorter length of tools,the higher the rigidity and performance of cutting.
  • The length of the flute become twice,the rigidity of end mills falls to1/8.
  • Milling cutters are used for tools move phorizontal.
  • The inverse ratio of tool rigidity to flute length is the most suitable.
  • It is not beneficial to use too long milling cutters.
  • We have a variety of product series with flute lengths, and you can choose the one that is suitable flute length for the processing content.

End Mill Shape

  • We offer products with different bottom edges and multiple uses.
  • The shape of the bottom edge means that the product has a Square End / Ball End / Corner Radius End.
  • Standard sizes are available from stock.

Square End mill

The 4-flute flat bottom tungsten steel milling cutter has strong performance and high cost performance advantage, suitable for processing and cutting of different materials.
Perform fine or rough milling, mill grooves, remove a large number of blanks, and finish milling of small horizontal planes or contours;

Ball End mill

The flute is similar to a ball head and is assembled on a milling machine for milling various curved surfaces and arc grooves. The tool can mill die steel, cast iron, carbon steel, alloy steel, tool steel, and general iron, and belongs to the end mill. Ball end milling cutter can work normally in high temperature environment.

Corner Radius End mill

Corner-radius end mills have slightly rounded corners that help distribute cutting forces evenly to prevent damage to the end mill and extend its life. They can create flat-bottomed grooves with slightly rounded inside corners.The general corner radius is R0.5 and R1.

End Mill Diameters

  • End mill head diameters play a crucial role in determining the machining capabilities, precision, and versatility of these cutting tools. The head diameter refers to the width of the cutting portion of the end mill, which directly affects the size and shape of the features it can create.
  • Larger head diameters are suitable(6,7,10,12mm end mill) for heavy-duty machining tasks, such as roughing or material removal at higher feed rates. They can handle deeper cuts and often provide better stability due to their increased cross-sectional area. This makes them well-suited for machining larger components and achieving faster material removal rates.
  • Smaller head diameters(0.5,1.5,1mm end mill), on the other hand, are ideal for intricate and precise operations. They excel in tasks that demand fine detail, tight tolerances, and smooth surface finishes. Their smaller size allows for intricate contouring, intricate pocketing, and delicate profiling in tight spaces.
  • In many cases, a range of end mill head diameters is necessary to address various machining requirements. Manufacturers offer a diverse selection of end mill sizes and geometries, allowing machinists to select the most suitable tool for each specific task. Whether it's for aerospace, automotive, mold making, or general machining applications, end mill head diameters are a critical consideration in optimizing performance and achieving desired machining outcomes.

Application Of Milling Cutter

  • Milling cutter is a tool for CNC milling, mainly used for plane, groove, side milling and other processes on the milling machine.End mill can cut laterally into the material and create slots or profiles.
  • Customers choose cutting tools with high durability and good effect according to the materials, quality requirements, cutting performance and machining allowance of the parts to be processed.
|  Carbide milling cutters are widely used in aerospace, medical equipment, mold manufacturing, automobile & general engineering

Metal Processing

Milling cutter plays an important role in the processing of metal materials. It can be used for cutting, slotting, boring, drilling and other operations to manufacture various metal parts, such as gears, bearing seats, connectors and so on. Milling can be done at different angles and depths to obtain the desired shape and size.

Mold Manufacturing

Milling cutters are used to make molds, such as plastic injection molds, die casting molds and stamping molds. It can precisely cut the profile and details of the mold, ensuring the accuracy and consistency of the final product.

Aerospace Industry

Milling cutters also play a key role in the manufacture of aircraft parts and aerospace devices. It can process complex surfaces and holes to ensure the accuracy and quality of parts, while reducing weight and improving performance.

Automotive Manufacturing

Milling cutters are used to manufacture automotive engine parts, chassis components and body structures. It can precisely cut engine blocks, crankshafts, brakes and suspension parts to improve vehicle reliability and performance.

Energy Equipment

Milling cutters also have important applications in energy equipment manufacturing, such as the processing of turbomachinery components for power plants and nuclear power equipment.
