As the name suggests, solid carbide endmills are manufactured from solid carbide, meaning they can be used in conjunction with even the toughest materials. For instance, Rennie Tool Company provides carbide endmills that can be used for milling steel and aluminium, meaning they won’t incur damage even when cutting through hard metals. What’s more, we provide various types of solid carbide endmills so that our customers can select the endmill for their chosen application. To that end, detailed below are just some of the solid carbide endmill types that can be purchased from Rennie Tool Company.
First and foremost, square endmills are some of the most popular milling cutters in the industry. This is because they can be applied in various ways, including grooving, plunging, counter boring, face milling, and side milling. Here at Rennie Tool Company, we provide a number of different diameter sizes, allowing your customers to get their hands on exactly what they need to bring their milling ideas to life.
BALLNOSE MILLING MACHINE TOOLS
Although solid carbide ballnose endmills are used for a multitude of milling operations, including corner picking, slotting, profiling, and contouring, their primary application is in 3D semi-finishing operations. This is down to the nature of their shape, which allows for efficient machine part contours.
For anyone looking to remove significant amounts of materials rapidly, solid carbide roughing endmills are the way forward. This is because the wavy tooth forms a cut on the periphery, which facilitates the successive cutting edges in which small chips are produced. From this, a somewhat rough surface finish is achieved, which is where the term “roughing” endmills comes from.
As the name suggests, thread mills are used to create both external and internal threads of different sizes via the circular movement of a rotating tool. Thread pitch is crafted by the lateral movement in one revolution. That said, thread milling is typically used on larger holes, which doesn’t tend to be the case for tapping.
WHY IS CARBIDE USED FOR CUTTING TOOLS?
Solid carbide endmill cutters are typically applied in this way as the material allows them to retain their cutting-edge hardness at high machining temperatures. These high temperatures are generated by high cutting speeds. As a result, carbide tool bits allow for improved surface finish and hold size far longer, equating to better quality.
