End Mill Breakdown
Whether you are plunging or rounding an edge, understanding the right end mill type and cutting diameter is key to enhancing your CNC milling experience.
Flat End Mill - (also known as square end mill) Is best for use with milling, plunging, and grooving
Ball End Mill - Is best for use with milling complex three-dimensional contours, slotting, and pocketing
The Cutting diameter is the thickness of the cut. The thicker the diameter the better it is at plunging, and a thinner diameter gives it the ability to cut more detailed edges.
Spektra coating is brilliant in not only color but also performance
Amana Tool offers Spektra coating which uses nACo micro-thin ceramic coating to provide a distinctive tinted color and extreme nano hardness as well as high heat resistance. nACo enables the cutting edge to retain sharpness and lubricity providing longevity and high quality cutting results with hardwood and plastics. While attractive, the initial manufacturing colors will dissipate from regular use, but the Spektra coating will continue to remain fully effective.
