Emuge Corp. recently announced the introduction of an extensive line of high-performance solid carbide end mills for applications ranging from universal milling to aerospace and high hardness machining. This new line further broadens the depth of Emuge’s rotary cutting tool portfolio in the United States and Canadian metalworking manufacturing marketplace.
The end mills, branded Emuge-Franken, incorporate the latest in end mill technology, geometry and coatings and are designed to outperform conventional end mill offerings.
“Emuge is well known for its high quality/performance taps and thread mills, but many people are not aware that Emuge has also been manufacturing high-performance end mills since the company was founded,” said Bob Hellinger, president of Emuge Corp. “We have decided to aggressively launch a comprehensive line of high-performance mills to broaden our North American tool portfolio and meet customers’ increased demands for high-performance tools in today’s demanding applications.”
In addition to the end mills introduction, beginning in the first quarter of 2016, Emuge will be offering complete grinding/reconditioning services for end mill products as well as other cutting tools, at their West Boylston, MA facility.
The new Emuge US/Canadian solid carbide end mill launch includes the following tool lines:
Top-Cut VAR, a versatile, variable helix solid carbide inch end mill program featuring unique geometry and advanced ALCR PVD coating, for universal milling applications in virtually all materials.
Top-Cut, metric end mills for universal milling applications with variable helix flutes and TiALN PVD coating ideal for both roughing and finishing operations.
Multi-Cut, carbide roughing end mills designed with a unique serrated cutting-edge chip-breaker technology for optimum chip evacuation and can achieve metal removal rates 5-10 times that of conventional end mills in a full range of materials.
TiNOX-Cut, a coolant-fed roughing end mill for demanding applications such as in exotic materials and Aerospace machining. Tools feature variable flute spacing and a serrated chip-breaker profile for aggressive material removal and a high heat-resistant multi-layer TiN/TiALN coating.
Hard-Cut end mills specially developed for the machining of hardened materials up to 66 HRC.
Approximately 400 standard end mill SKU’s will be stocked in Emuge’s West Boylston facility in a full range of sizes, inch and metric.
