Press Release Summary:
Available in sizes from 3/16–Â¾ in., Alumigator is designed for accelerated ramping into pockets at angles up to 45Â°. End mill, once at full depth of cut, will chew through material as aided by core and engineered cutting edges that maximize cutter strength. Combination of geometries produces short curled chip, which is evacuated at accelerated rates to help prevent double cutting chips and keep flutes from packing.
Original Press Release:
Next Generation High Performance Aluminum Roughing End Mill
The next generation of high performance end mills. This end mill is designed to ramp into pockets at speeds and ramp angles surpassing the current industry capabilities. With up to a 45° ramp angle, you can reach the bottom of the pocket 3-4 times faster than a traditional end mill. Once at full depth of cut, the Alumigator end mill will chew through material at ease with material removal rates exceeding the traditional aluminum rougher. Its strong core and highly engineered cutting edges, produce an extremely strong cutter that comes standard with several radius size options. The Alumigator's combination of geometries, produce a short curled chip that is evacuated quickly to help prevent double cutting chips and keeps the flutes from packing. Available in sizes ranging from 3/16"-3/4", there is an Alumigator end mill for every aluminum roughing application.
