51804 High Performance Solid Carbide CNC Steel, Stainless Steel & Composite Cutting Variable Helix Spiral Ball Nose with AlTiN Coating 4-Flute x 1/2 Dia x 1 x 1/2 Shank x 3 Inch Long Up-Cut Router Bit/End Mill
Solid Carbide Variable Helix Spiral Ball Nose End Mill with Aluminum Titanium Nitride (AlTiN) coating
Amana Tool's variable helix tools are the superstars of carbide end mills for professionals and hobbyists alike. The variable helix eliminates harmonic chatter, so critical when surface finishes part dimension tolerances and tool life are of the utmost importance. Premium Aluminum Titanium Nitride (AlTiN) coating provides quantum increases in productivity either in terms of speed or longevity with or without coolant.
They are outstanding tools for peripheral milling and can take aggressive cuts along the full length of the overall flute length with no issues. They last much longer than general purpose end mills partly because they are coated partly because they dampen vibration which tends to break a sharp cutting edge down very quickly. For use with manual and automatic milling machines, as well as the most sophisticated CNC machines.
