Cutting Foam on your CNC Machine requires a specialist type of end mill to get the best possible quality, speed and accuracy of your project. Amana Tool Square Two Flute Upcut end mills pull chips away from your material, allowing you to achieve precision and depth for any foam carving and machining process.
Amana tools end mills only use the highest quality sub-micron grain carbide. The manufacturing process of Amana endmills takes advantage of a manufacturing process which provides both accuracy and detail along with a razor-sharp cutting edge. This will result in clean cuts, excellent cut and surface finish, and most importantly longer tool life.
These Foam cutting endmills from Amana Tools have productivity in mind. The Amana Toll endmills provide a much harder cutting edge over standard carbide, increasing tool life. It also has the added benefit of better chip evacuation by reducing the build-up of chips inside the flutes ejecting the chips away and saving you the cost of replacing lesser quality foam tools.
