T-Carb Endmills

February 01,2014

SGS Tool Co. has added a new series of 6-Flute High Performance End Mills to its offering. The new T-Carb product line is ideal for aggressive high speed machining applications using Trochoidal and Peel Milling techniques. The product line has launched in support of the company's ongoing commitment to high performance tooling and continuous improvement.

The 6-Flute design excels in machining at higher feed rates while reducing tool loads, ultimately preventing breakage and failure. The variable pitch geometry allows the T-Carb to provide superior performance in multiple operations calling for roughing and finishing, resulting in faster cycle times and lower costs. This new series is ideal in applications where aggressive ramping at high speeds are critical to performance in target markets such as aerospace structural and titanium components, medical replacement parts and joints, automotive and motorized vehicles, and energy and power generation.

T-Carb 6-Flute High Performance End Mills are offered in a variety of length, neck and corner radius options and are exclusively available with SGS's proprietary Ti-NAMITE-X coating for ultimate thermal barrier protection, superior adhesion and longer tool life.

Related Glossary Terms

  • feed


    Rate of change of position of the tool as a whole, relative to the workpiece while cutting.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • milling


    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.

  • pitch


    1. On a saw blade, the number of teeth per inch. 2. In threading, the number of threads per inch.
