Valenite Introduces New Valmill(TM) 400 Ball Nose End Mill

A new finishing ball nose end mill for die and mold and general machining applications

Valenite is introducing a new finish ball nose end mill that now brings the benefits of precision ground inserts with strong cutting edges and new PVD insert coatings, to produce superior finishes and greater accuracy for milling in die and mold and general machining applications.

The finishing ball nose end mill is called the ValMILL(TM) 400. It combines the use of advanced insert coating technology with an innovative rigid cutter design that utilizes a TorxPlus(TM) insert locking mechanism. The end mill cutter bodies are available in six different cutter diameters from .375-inches to 1.25-inches. Maximum recommended speeds for the end mills range from 32,500 rpms for the larger diameters up to 40,000 rpms for the smallest.

The end mill is designed to use a special precision ground insert that has two effective teeth per insert and provides cutting diameter accuracy of ±.0004-inch. The precision edge quality of the insert is ground on the entire insert circumference providing superior performance. The inserts are available in a new, highly versatile grade, VP5007, suitable for a wide range of workpiece materials. VP5007 has a micrograin substrate and a Titanium Aluminum Nitride PVD coating that provides superior wear resistance and edge integrity required for producing superior surface finishes.
