Solid Carbide Hard Material End Mills

Solid Carbide Hard Material End MillsA range of high performance finishing end mills for operation on hard materials up to 52HRC (512HB), plus Somta’s hi-feed end mill with patent pending geometry that removes the most amount of material in the least amount of time combined with extended tool life, for use on hard and super hard steels up to 65HRC (880HV).

Solid Carbide Hi-Feed End Mill

Somta’s Hi-Feed end mill with patent pending geometry removes the most amount of material in the least amount of time with extended tool life. It is excellent in 3 dimensional cutting of hard and super hard steels up to 65HRC (880HV).

Somta’s Hi-Feed end mill provides outstanding metal removal rates with an excellent surface finish.

The main features of these Hi-Feed end mills include:

  • Unique and Patent Pending Geometry designed in conjunction with our international development partners who have decades of design and development experience in the carbide tooling industry, provides high performance combining metal removal rates with an extended tool life.
  • Specially adapted Oerlikon Balzers coating which further improves operational performance and tool life.
  • Ultra fine carbide grade of European origin.
  • Necked shanks provide extended reach in deep cavities.
  • Internal centre coolant hole allows for optimal coolant and chip evacuation.
  • Ultra negative axial rake angle and special cutting edge geometry for extra strength and longer tool life.
  • Designed to works standard over the 6mm to 20mm diameter range.
  • Cylindrical shank with h6 tolerance.



Applications of these Hi-Feed end mills:

  • High productivity 3 dimensional rough cutting (helical ramping, circular interpolation, and pocketing) in hard and super hard steels up to 65HRC with shallow cut and at super high feeds.
  • In face milling and 3-D applications, Somta’s Hi-Feed end mill can be used for finishing, semi finishing, and roughing operations.
  • Perfect for roughing in hardened steels up to 65HRC.
  • Prevents chipping on cutting edges and corners.
  • Provides superior performance, combining high metal removal rates with an extended tool life.
  • Suited for the die and mould industry as well as medical markets.

Solid Carbide Finishing End Mills

A range of high performance finishing end mills for operation on hard materials. The finishers are designed for peripheral milling of contours and complex shapes, and are ideal for hardened mould and die steels up to 52HRC (512HB).

The main features of these Finishing End Mills 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.
  • Specially adapted Oerlikon Balzers coating which further improves operational performance and tool life.
  • Ultra fine carbide grade of European origin.
  • Chamfer and dubbing features to reinforce cutting tool corners for extended tool life and reduced cutting tool forces at higher speeds.
  • Cylindrical shank with h6 tolerance.
  • High performance finishers for hard steel applications include:

Regular length square end (03G), regular length (03I) and long series (03J) ball nose variants.

  • Designed to works standard over the 4mm to 20mm diameter range.
  • Non centre cutting.
  • Possible design modifications – neck according to customer request.

In combination, these features result in an extremely high performance carbide cutting tool range, which competes favourably with current global state-of-the-art solid carbide cutting tool designs. In some tested applications these new solid carbide end mills have outperformed competitive products by up to four times. High stock removal rates at high speeds and feeds, excellent finish quality and extended tool life are the major benefits of these new designs, in very hard work materials with complex applications.

Applications of these Finishing End Mills include:

  • Designed for peripheral milling of contours and complex shapes.
  • Ideal for hardened mould and die steels up to 52HRC.
