According to Iscar, it has invested a great deal of time and effort in developing tools that are able to deliver maximum metal removal rates when used on today’s most popular materials. The application of the most appropriate advanced geometries, combined with the most suitable coatings and correct carbide grades ensure maximum metal removal rates, the company claims. The company's Chatterfree solid carbide end mills with different flute helix angles and variable pitch are made for rough machining operations of stainless steel; the EC-H4M-CF-E end mills feature 4 and 5-flute, variable pitch and configurations and different helix angles; 37º/39º, cylindrical and Weldon shanks. They are made from an IC900 PVD coated grade and are available in a 6-16 mm diameter range, Iscar says.

These highly efficient tools reduce cutting forces and power consumption and increase productivity in low-power machines with CAT40 or BT40 or HSK 63 spindles when used on most types of materials, including steel, stainless steel and exotic materials.

Following the successful introduction of the Finishred solid carbide end mills, featuring Iscar’s IC300 substrate, the range’s good performance on titanium, other high-temperature materials and stainless steel proved to be extremely advantageous, Iscar claims.

Made for 5-axis machining applications

For 5-axis machining, Iscar offers the ball-nose Chatterfree variable pitch solid carbide end mills, which are designed for roughing and finishing operations on hard materials of up to 65 HRC, the cutting tool specialist says. Made from grade IC902 to provide long tool life, these variants feature a unique geometry and are available in a diameter range from 3 - 16 mm, Iscar says. Furthermore, the EB-E4L….CF.. IC902 end mills are said to provide a unique solution for machining hard materials and offer advantageous performance, especially within the die and mould industry.
