Published Date

BallRoughNose - New line of indexable ball nose end mills, designed to provide maximum reliability during roughing and semi-finishing. Its dovetail clamping design prevents insert movement during demanding operations. Insert rotation is restrained by the unique locking design in the insert seat. These features boost reliability during 3D profiling or plunging. The insert’s unique hybrid design allows one side for center cutting and the other for peripheral, eliminating the need to purchase two different inserts. Tool bodies are equipped with through-coolant channels for effective chip evacuation. The tool shanks are available for working diameters of .625″ (ø16 mm), .75″ (ø20 mm), and 1″ (ø25 mm) in an array of shank designs.
