End Mills for High Performance Aerospace Machining

Emuge Corp. has expanded its EMUGE-FRANKEN TiNox-Cut End Mills line, which is designed for high-performance machining of demanding materials such as Inconel/nickel alloys, titanium and stainless steel found in aerospace and other challenging applications. Four TiNox-Cut End Mill series are now offered, including the new 5-flute N, NF, Base and Trochoidal tools.

The series includes:

  • 5-Flute TiNox-Cut N: This new coolant-fed series features five flutes for high feedrates, a raised land that increases chip clearance and an ALCR coating. It is a high-performance tool designed for roughing and finishing titanium and titanium alloys.
  • TiNox-Cut NF: This high-performance series features a fine chip breaker design that reduces chip size while reducing cutting forces. The tool features a proprietary TiN/TiALN coating in both coolant-fed and solid designs and is suited for semi-finishing nickel alloys.
  • TiNox-Cut Base: The Base design is a material-specific style tool with a proprietary TiN/TiALN coating for roughing and finishing primarily stainless and acid-resistant steels.
  • TiNox-Cut Trochoidal: Designed for high metal removal rates, this tool series features a newly developed geometry, a proprietary TiN/TiALN coating and a chip breaker edge, which combined, reduces stress and vibration when machining difficult materials such as titanium. All tools are coolant-fed for maximum performance. "Designed for trochoidal milling via the overlapping movement of circular paths, these tools can rough and finish mill over 30% faster than standard designs while significantly increasing tool life," said a company spokesperson.

EMUGE-FRANKEN TiNox-Cut End Mills are made from ultra-fine micro grain solid carbide with a maximized transverse rupture strength for high impact applications. "Advanced PVD-applied multi-layered coatings withstand excessive heat and provide superb wear resistance for longer tool life, and tool geometry is designed to produce minimal vibration when machining tough materials," said the spokesperson.

TiNox-Cut N, NF and Trochoidal End Mills are available in axial internal coolant-through capability for maximum chip evacuation and cooling ability. TiNox-Cut N and TiNox-Cut Trochoidal tools are available in both square-end and corner radius configurations. Weldon flat shank construction is available in both TiNox-Cut NF and TiNox-Cut Trochoidal tools, and is compatible with Emuge FPC Milling Chucks featuring an anti-pullout pin lock system. Overall, the expanded line includes tools that are available in inch sizes ranging from 1/4" to 1" in diameter, and in stub, standard, long and extra-long lengths.
