Click image to enlargeSGS Tool Co. has added a new series of three-flute end mills for difficult materials and challenging applications.

The end mills are available with a corner radius and are suitable for aggressive ramping, pocketing and slotting of materials such as stainless steel, titanium and Inconel. The open structure at the axial end accommodates material flow and load reduction during machining operations involving aerospace structure components, medical replacement parts and automotive performance components. A stepped core design provides chip control and rigidity when the flute is engaged, and a unique variable helix and pitch configuration provide chatter and vibration suppression.
