Solid Carbide End Mills for Aluminium

Solid Carbide End Mills for AluminiumThe current market trend is towards the increasing use of aluminium substrate in the manufacture of die cut and moulds. Aluminium substrate offers many advantages, such as excellent machinability and good thermal conductivity, as well as being light in weight, with a high strength-to-weight ratio.

Due to the relative softness of aluminium, specific characteristics and geometries in solid carbide end mills are required for efficient machining of this ductile material.

Somta’s high efficiency carbide end mill range with optimal flute geometry provides all the required features for high performance machining of aluminium, with the added benefits of greater stock removal rates at high speeds and feeds, excellent surface finish quality and extended tool life.

The range allows for roughing and finishing applications in aluminium and other non-ferrous materials and competes favourably with current global state-of-the-art solid carbide cutting tool designs.

The main features of these solid carbide end mills for aluminium include:

  • Innovative new geometries designed in conjunction with our international development partners who have decades of design and development experience in the carbide tooling industry. The benefit is a range of state-of-the-art carbide cutting tools with superior performance.
  • Sub-micron carbide grade of European origin.
  • Optimal flute geometry delivers maximum metal removal rates and better chip evacuation.
  • Effective in a full range of machine speeds, from 3 000 to 20 000 RPM’s and more.
  • Only one tool is needed for use in roughing and finishing operations.
  • Can take deeper and wider cuts – axial and radial. Slotting is effective up to full 1xD axial depth. Side milling (profiling) is effective up to 0.5xD radial by 1.0xD axial depth.
  • Shank tolerances to h6.
  • Reinforced corner by extra positive dubbing for long tool life.
  • Centre cutting with drilling possibility.
  • Designed to works standard over the 1mm to 20mm diameter range.
  • Multiple corner radii and extended neck configurations are available to maximise metal removal rates.

Applications:

  • High stock removal rates at high speeds and feeds, excellent finish quality and extended tool life are the major benefits of these ranges.
  • Can be used in a wide range of applications, with excellent results achieved in the aerospace, automotive and die and mould industries.
  • Effective in high-speed machining, conventional milling and MQL applications.
  • Designed for customers machining a large amount of aluminium products as significantly reduces machining time in aluminium cutting.
