Rougher geometry prevents built-up edge in high metal removal

Advantages

Mirror-Like Finish

Our first choice milling range for mirror workpiece surface finish

Clears Sticky Materials

Special geometry quickly eliminates swarf without flute clogging

Not just Aluminium

Also for copper, brass, plastics and other non-ferrous metals

>Be More Efficient

Optimised solutions for finishing, roughing & medium cutting

Features

U-Shaped Flutes

Deep flute pockets and buffed flute surfaces inhibit built-up edge

Double Relief Angle

Double Relief Angle High rigidity of the cutting edge ensures high productivity

Lapped Flutes

Polished flute design offers an extremely high quality surface finish

Various Geometries

Suitable for both roughing and finishing applications
