LMT Onsrud LP is launching a new endmill series designed to meet the toughest challenges of machining Inconel and other nickel-based materials. The new MXR series has been engineered for heavy profiling allowing for 15 percent radial engagement during machining.
The optimized variable geometry delivers unmatched material-removal rates (mrr) with superior workpiece finishes. Available with four or five flutes and with multiple corner radii, including a 4-flute ballnose for contouring, this series is ENDURASpeed coated and edge conditioned to increase tool life and performance.

Milling cutter held by its shank that cuts on its periphery and, if so configured, on its free end. Takes a variety of shapes (single- and double-end, roughing, ballnose and cup-end) and sizes (stub, medium, long and extra-long). Also comes with differing numbers of flutes.
Grooves and spaces in the body of a tool that permit chip removal from, and cutting-fluid application to, the point of cut.
Machining vertical edges of workpieces having irregular contours; normally performed with an endmill in a vertical spindle on a milling machine or with a profiler, following a pattern. See mill, milling machine.
