end mill - side view
Solid Carbide End Mills are solid shank milling tools designed to use side cutting flute edges to machine most materials. There are two cutting styles. Non-center cutting (side cutting only) and center grinding (side and end plunge cutting). They are available with two flutes, three flutes, four flutes, six flutes and even eight flutes for cutting. More flutes reduces chip load and can improve the surface finish. End mills may be a single end or double end design. There are five standard lengths (stub, regular, long flute, extra long flute, and extended length) for end mills.

Note: Our 6 & 8 flute end mills are only available in High Speed Steel.

SOLID CARBIDE 4 FLUTE - SINGLE END
Micrograin Solid Carbide 4 Flute End Mills are designed for production milling of slots, keyways, pockets, and other similar milling operations requiring a finer finish than what a 2 or 3 flute end mill could produce and they can be run at higher speeds. They are center cutting and can plunge cut to depth to start milling and slotting with minimal chatter. They are used to machine tough work hardening metals and abrasive materials at speeds 3 to 10 times faster than high speed steel end mills.

TAPERED END
Solid Carbide 3 Flute Tapered End Mills are designed with a constant spiral to prevent chatter during use and to resist side thrusts and deflection. They are used primarily for milling die and mold cavities and are sometimes referred to as Taper Degree End Mills or Tapered Milling Cutters.

SOLID CARBIDE (MINI-STUB LENGTH) END MILLS
Micrograin Stub Length Solid Carbide Miniature Double End Mills are designed with a common 1/8" or 3/16" solid center shank to provide extra rigidity when doing small diameter slot milling, engraving, pocket milling, and other similar milling operations requiring extra fine detail work. The stub length flutes are stronger and more rigid than regular length flutes and are used to machine tough work hardening metals and abrasive materials. Double end mills will cut twice as long as single mills and when one end wears out, it can quickly be reversed in the collet to reduce changeover time, overall costs, and inventory.

SOLID CARBIDE (CORNER RADIUS) END MILLS
Micrograin Solid Carbide 2 Flute Corner Radius End Mills are designed for milling a radius in the corner of a slot or pocket. The corner radius on the tip of the flutes reduces chipping and provides extra strength for longer tool life. Corner Radius End Mills are used primarily for milling dies and molds. A wide range of radius sizes eliminates alterations of standard end mills. They are also known as Rounded End Mills.
