This extremely versatile end mill handles twice the feed rate with a much broader speed range	Click image to enlargeUnique cutting geometry gives Greenleaf Corp.’s XSYTIN-360 high-performance solid ceramic end mills ten times higher productivity, leading to tremendous cost savings.

The material’s strength allows the user to apply chip loads similar to solid carbide end mills with higher speeds common to ceramic machining.

Greenleaf’s XSYTIN-1 material is engineered to machine a wider variety of materials than any other ceramic in the industry. The structure of this phase-toughened ceramic exhibits high wear resistance and outstanding thermal shock resistance, which makes the end mills highly predictable and versatile.

These end mills have proven to be extremely effective when machining a variety of different materials including high-temperature alloys, 3D-printed sintered high-temperature alloys, hardened steels, ductile cast irons, and compacted graphite iron (CGI). In hardened steels specifically, the tool life has proven to be equal to high-performance carbide end mills when run at high-end speeds (11,460 RPM), while also removing over 73 cubic inches (over 1200 cubic cm) of material.

Unique features and benefits of XSYTIN-360 end mills include:

  • Unique flute design minimizes cutting forces, which reduces vibrations and optimizes tool life
  • Four-flute design allows for maximum material removal in slotting, pocketing, and profiling applications
  • Overall length of the end mills provides the option for regrind capabilities
  • A very broad application range means numerous machining centers are capable of running these end mills
  • Extremely versatile end mills with twice the feed rate capability and a much broader speed range
