New Emuge Application-Specific Conical Ball Nose End Mills Significantly Increase Productivity, Efficiency.

With Emuge Conical Ball Nose End Mills, Impellers, Blisks, Turbine Blades and Tire Profiles Can Be Machined Completely Without Tool Changes.

WEST BOYLSTON, MA U.S.A. (December 9, 2008) - Today, Emuge Corp. announced the introduction of Conical Ball Nose End Mills that are uniquely designed for the machining of specific components in several key manufacturing segments including automotive, aerospace, energy and HVAC. The end mills are conical in shape, with a highly accurate ball nose capable of completely machining impellers, blisks, turbine blades and tire profiles without a single tool change during 3-axes and 5-axes operations.

"We can now offer customers manufacturing these specific components with a milling tool solution that will eliminate tool changes and increase productivity," said Mr. Stephen Jean, Milling Products Manager at Emuge Corp. "For example, when machining an impeller, one Conical Ball Nose End Mill can rough and finish the individual blades as well as the flow surfaces at the impeller hub." Also, Jean reported that when machining tire profiles, it is possible to finish the entire mold segment including the interlock bevel and the tire tread features including all radius detail with a single tool.

Offering an application-specific solution, these tools are available in a wide range of sizes. Uncoated designs are able to mill aluminum and specialty steels including nickel-chrome steels and Inconel. End mills with a TiALN coating can machine steel materials at up to 45 Rc as well as cast and non-ferrous metals.

These Emuge Conical Ball Nose End Mills are available in two standard forms, one with shorter flute lengths for increased rigidity. In addition, special tools made to customer specifications are offered.
