The DF end mill series has received a favorable reception in the market as a tool that realises optimum performance and that are ideal for milling graphite electrodes, copper alloys, aluminium and FRP. It exhibits an excellent resistant to wear when machining graphite materials that are extremely brittle and flammable.
To expand the options available to customers, a long overall length type and ball nose end mill with a long neck will be added to the middle length flute type in the DF series.
Features of "Insert Series for Steel Turning"
- Adoption of diamond coating with high crystalline content optimized for graphite milling. It delivers excellent wear resistance and achieves a long, stable tool life when machining graphite.
- Corner radius and ball nose end mills adopt a seamless blend between radius and peripheral cutting edge, thereby ensuring a highly accurate and smooth surface finish.
- 137 different items are available to allow wider range of applications.
