RobbJack’s FMHV two- and three-flute end mills are designed for high-horsepower, high-velocity aluminum aerospace machining. The company says its Mirror edge geometry progressively reduces vibration at greater Z-depths of cut. Anti-pullout shank technology prevents tools from pulling out of the holder.  Well-suited for high-speed machining of deep pockets and thin walls, the tools are available with through-coolant holes and a DLC coating that extends tool life in roughing applications. Overall length and reach length are designed to maximize gripping force in tight-tolerance toolholders. The company reports that a 1" diameter, three-flute FMHV with through-coolant holes and DLC coating can achieve a peak metal-removal rate of 713 ipm3 (72 lbs of 7075 aluminum per min.).
