LMT Onsrud LP has a new series of high performance end mill offering: end mills for steel and cast iron. The combination of both the variable helix and the variable index geometry prevents harmonics, reducing chatter, therefore leaving a superior finish on the workpiece, the company says. The open flute form increases chip flow, which results in higher feed rates. The tapered web increases the end mill’s toughness, and the variable helix reduces the cutting forces, so an increase the depth of cut can be achieved. Chip control, higher feed rates and increased depth of cut ensure a higher material removal rate. A combination of the substrate, the advanced cutting edge conditioning and the PVD high performance coating results in increased tool life, the company says.
