S-Carb Endmills

September 01,2014

SGS Tool Co. has expanded its S-Carb offering to include a new ballnose geometry, additional corner radius and reach options and larger diameters. The S-Carb high-performance endmills are for aggressive aluminum, nonferrous and nonmetallic machining applications requiring a high level of material removal.

The S-Carb 3-flute series have been engineered with a specialized flute to effectively manage the size and volume of chips produced during aggressive machining. The long-reach neck design provide clearance to reach with short flutes for maximum rigidity. The new S-Carb ballnose option is ideal for workpieces with complex surfaces.

The entire S-Carb product offering are ideal solutions for cycle time reduction in target applications such as aerospace structure components; automotive performance wheels, housings, and transmissions; non-ferrous mold cavities and aluminum components used in firearms and weaponry.

The expanded fractional offering is available from stock with both an uncoated or optional coated version. Ti-NAMITE-B (TiB2) is the exclusive high performance coating for SGS Aluminum Solutions, providing superior wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction for extended tool life.
