OSG is pleased to announce that inch sizes have been added to the A Brand AE-CR-MS-H End Mill offering! The A Brand AE-CR-MS-H is a multi-flute square type and radius type carbide end mill designed for stable and high-efficiency milling of high-hardness steels. With the addition of the new DUROREY coating uniquely engineered for high-hardness steels, high chipping resistance is made possible even in work materials exceeding 60 HRC, allowing long tool life and high speed milling.
The following list numbers are associated with the NEW A Brand AE-CR-MS-H series:
- NEW! List #8470 A Brand AE-CR-MS-H (inch)
The A Brand AE-CR-MS-H end mill offers the following features & benefits:
- Variable index to reduce chattering
- Cutting edge geometry for stable machining of high-hardness steels
- DUROREY coating which allows for outstanding performance in high-hardness steels

- gang cutting ( milling)
gang cutting ( milling)
Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.
Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
- milling machine ( mill)
milling machine ( mill)
Runs endmills and arbor-mounted milling cutters. Features include a head with a spindle that drives the cutters; a column, knee and table that provide motion in the three Cartesian axes; and a base that supports the components and houses the cutting-fluid pump and reservoir. The work is mounted on the table and fed into the rotating cutter or endmill to accomplish the milling steps; vertical milling machines also feed endmills into the work by means of a spindle-mounted quill. Models range from small manual machines to big bed-type and duplex mills. All take one of three basic forms: vertical, horizontal or convertible horizontal/vertical. Vertical machines may be knee-type (the table is mounted on a knee that can be elevated) or bed-type (the table is securely supported and only moves horizontally). In general, horizontal machines are bigger and more powerful, while vertical machines are lighter but more versatile and easier to set up and operate.
