ITC Two-flute ball nosed end mills for machining aluminium
UK - Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has extended its line of aluminium milling tools with the introduction of the 2172 Cyber Series of two-flute ball nosed end mills.
Designed specifically for high-feed machining with impeccible surface finishes, under test conditions the 2172 Series surpasses the performance levels of competitor milling lines, the company reports.
The solid carbide two-flute ball nosed line is manufactured from an ultra wear resistant micro-grain carbide. According to ITC, the benefit of this carbide composition is that edge wear and chipping are minimised to extend tool life. For manufacturers working on production runs, this is said to give consistency and longevity with no unforeseen tool changeover requirements.
Suitable for machining aluminium and other non-ferrous materials, the line is available in diameters of 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20 mm with matching shank diameters. The overall length of the end mills ranges from 40 to 100 mm.
