Basic End Mills Technical Information | MSC Industrial ...

Ball end mills, also known as ball nose end mills, are used for milling contoured surfaces, slotting and pocketing. A ball end mill is constructed of a round cutting edge and used in the machining of dies and molds. Roughing end mills, also known as hog mills, are used to quickly remove large amounts of material during heavier operations.

corner radius Archives - Harvey Performance Company

The most common profile styles for end mills are square, corner radius, and ball. The square profile on an end mill has flutes with sharp corners that are squared off at 90°. A corner radius profile replaces the fragile sharp corner with a radius, adding strength and helping to prevent chipping while prolonging tool life.

Very basic milling question about depth of cut | The Hobby ...

The endmill will cut as fast as you can turn the handle. The limitations are spindle speed, horsepower, and machine rigidity. A 1/2 endmill will take at least 1 inch DOC and 30-40% width of cut in steel. Without ball screws, you can only take very light climb cuts due to backlash. You can cut full depth, but maybe only 0.005 on the width.

Radius End Mills | McMaster-Carr

Made of solid carbide, these end mills are harder, stronger, and more wear resistant than high-speed steel and cobalt steel for the longest life and best finish on hard material. Their extreme hardness means they are brittle, so a highly rigid setup, such as a CNC machine, is necessary to prevent the end mill from breaking. Use them to round sharp corners on the edge of your workpiece.
