Emuge has released a combination roughing and finishing end mill designed to reduce set-up and cycle times.
The Emuge-Franken TOP-Cut carbide end mill provides roughing and finishing operations in the same machine tool to limit tool change times. The combination also reduces operation vibration with design features such as a recessed neck, a tough carbide substrate, and a variable helix angle. The TOP-cut ships with heat-resistant TiALN coating to further improve operation.
“Now one end mill will maximize productivity, improve surface finishes, and extend tool life like never before,” Charles Colonair, Franken Milling project anager, said in a statement “And TOP-Cut performs 60 percent faster in roughing and finishing applications.”
