New Emuge Micro End Mills and Chucks Offer Efficient Machining of Challenging Materials

West Boylston, MA U.S.A. (October 13, 2020) - Emuge Corp. has announced the introduction of its new Micro End Mills and Micro Milling/ Drilling Chucks for a wide range of applications such as die and mold, medical and more. The Micro End Mills feature a patented neck design with up to 10x diameter, enabling reach into deep contours. For optimal machining performance, a high radial bending strength withstands alternating stress on the cutting edge and relieved neck. The new Emuge end mills offer High Speed Cutting finishing of 2D and 3D contours, and are offered in square, ball nose, and torus end types. Featuring a short, stable cutting geometry, the end mills are available in Solid Carbide and CBN designs.

The Solid Carbide Micro End Mills are designed for high precision machining applications up to 55 HRC, and can machine small engravings, electrodes, components and cavities with varying depths. For heat and wear resistance, the end mills have a PVD applied thin film ALCR coating which results in long tool life. Ball Nose and Torus Solid Carbide End Mills provide high accuracy dimensional tolerances of ±5 µm. The solid carbide end mills are available with neck lengths of 2.2 x dia., 5 x dia. and 10 dia. and a cutting diameter of 0.2 to 2 mm.

Emuge CBN Micro End Mills offer increased tool life for high precision, accurate machining applications up to 66 HRC. The end mills produce highly polished surface finishes without the need for rework. The CBN Micro End Mills are available with neck lengths of 1.5 x dia., 3 x dia. and 4.5 x dia. and a range of cutting diameters from 0.3 to 2 mm.

New Emuge Micro Milling/ Drilling Chucks feature a slim design for hard to access areas, as well as high gripping torque and accuracy. The new Micro Chucks are part of the high precision/ performance Emuge FPC Mill/ Drill Chucks Line, providing unprecedented rigidity, vibration dampening, concentricity, machining speed, and tool life versus conventional chuck technologies for milling and drilling applications. Featuring the world's only chuck with a 1:16 worm gear, the Emuge FPC Chuck's patented design delivers three tons of traction force. The unique design and body provide 100% holding power for maximum rigidity, and the collet-cone assembly absorbs virtually all vibration for maximum dampening.

Emuge Micro Chucks are offered in a range of models in five shank styles (CAT, HSK, SK, BT and PSC) and hold 1- 6 mm or 1/8"-1/4" shank tools. Special coated collets provide high strength and lubricity. For ease of use, the chucks can be operated from behind with a supplied hex-key.

Emuge CNC Programming Assistance

On-staff Emuge CNC programmers develop machining cycles in conjunction with the most popular CAD/CAM providers such as Mastercam, Open Mind and others. Manufacturers from a broad range of industries look to Emuge CNC programming assistance to enable cost-effective and efficient manufacturing solutions. Not just from a CAM programming perspective, but also incorporating tool designs that allow for optimum performance.

Emuge Test Cuts Program

Exploring new technology and tooling designs is the best way for progressive manufacturers to stay ahead of the competition. New tooling solutions can sometimes be the best way to reduce cycle times and improve product quality. But breaking into production or tying up critical machines for testing new tool styles is not always an option. Emuge’s Technology Center offers a test cut service that allows manufacturers to run test cuts on actual piece parts or sample materials and also 3-Axis and 5-Axis programming assistance along with programming simulations when required.
