End Mills

END MILL SELECTION BASICS
  • END MILLS have cutting teeth on both end and side, permitting end cutting  and peripheral cutting. Center cutting types permit plunge and traverse  milling.
  • CUTTING EDGE: Select sharp edged for faster speeds. Select radial edged  for longer tool life.
  • SHANK DIAMETER: Select largest diameter available to maximize rigidity and minimize axial deflection and chatter.
  • NUMBER OF FLUTES: Select fewer  flutes for milling softer materials at higher speeds and feeds where more chip space is required or when  machine horsepower is limited.
  • Select more flutes for milling tougher materials at reduced speeds and feeds or for increased table feeds using the same cutting speeds.
  • CUTTING DIAMETER: Select largest practical diameter to maximize rigidity, minimize chatter and improve tool life. If machine spindle speed is limited, the largest practical diameter permits higher cutting speeds.   
  • FLUTE AXIAL RELATIONSHIP: Select straight flutes for usual general  purpose.
  • Select right spiral  flutes for improved cutting action and easier chip removal.   
  • Select left spiral  flutes for use in absorbing impact shock when entering steel work piece maintains constant hold down pressure, and minimizes chatter.  
  • Select high spiral (15° or more) to dramatically improve cutting action, finish, chip removal and tool life. High spirals distribute impact load more evenly throughout the tool’s entire revolution.
