EMUGE-FRANKEN USA has introduced its Cera-Cut end mills featuring a high-hardness cutting ceramic head brazed to a carbide shank for vibration dampening and long tool life. Featuring a high-feed duplex cutting-edge geometry, the end mills produce high metal removal rates in challenging nickel-based alloys. According to the company, tool life is five times higher than regular carbide end mills.
The end mills are designed for the consistent cutting of high-temperature resistant materials such as Inconel, Hastelloy, and Nimonic, as well as the machining of hardened tool steels. They are also suitable for making interrupted cuts and offer a tight cutting diameter tolerance ranging from -0.0008 to -0.0016 in. (-20 to -40 microns), depending on the tool diameter.
