Solid Ceramic End Mills for Machining Difficult Aerospace Components

Tungaloy has expanded its SolidMeister, a family of solid end mills, to include FeedMeister solid ceramic end mills.

Solid end mill applications are expanding as components are becoming more complex and miniaturized using diverse, difficult-to-cut materials such as heat-resistant superalloys.

"Pressing weight reduction requirements of aircraft urges manufacturers to use more difficult-to-machine materials to make components," said a company spokesperson. "Typical materials, such as nickel-based superalloys, impose extreme stress on the tool's cutting edge, thereby suppressing productivity improvement."

"The end mill lines of the FeedMeister series provide high productivity," continued the spokesperson. "Due to its high thermal resistance, ceramic end mills enable super high-speed milling. The enhanced FeedMeister line offers a tooling solution for demanding operations that require higher efficiency."

At a glance:

  • Ceramic end mills are suitable for machining HRSAs
  • FX150 ceramic grade enables high speed machining
  • High feed geometry provides increased machining efficiency
  • Also good for cast iron and specialty graphite materials.
