ATI Stellram introduces the RSM solid-carbide endmill for machining walls, pockets and surfaces in titanium aerospace components. The profiling endmill is manufactured from micrograin carbide substrate. The sharp honed cutting edge with specific primary and radial clearance angles provides stress-free penetration in the cut, and the reduced-diameter shank allows maximum reach and workholding stability, the company reports. Long and extra-long versions can be ordered.
