A new diamond-coated end mill that "cuts" carbide

A new diamond-coated end mill "cutting" carbide. Historically carbide molds, dies and components were formed using EDM or grinding. This series brings all the benefits of direct milling to forming complex 3D shapes from CAM data. A patented, highly advanced and durable diamond coating gives the specially designed ball end mill the capability to "cut" small micro chips of carbide as it forms the programmed feature. This video shows a 1.00mm ball end mill taking just 39 minutes to create a complex Hexalobular shape on VF-20 super micro grain carbide, rated at 92.5Hra. Roughed and finished with just one tool, from start to finish, leaving a clean, burr free surface finish.
