Cutting Aluminium 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 Spiral-O-Flute Upcut end mills pull chips away from your material, the single ‘O’ flute with unique Zrn Coating from Amana Tool creates larger chips dispersing heat effectively.
Amana tools end mills only use the highest quality sub-micron grain carbide. The manufacturing process of Amana endmills takes advantage of an edge processing system which gives the endmill a mirror finish with a razor-sharp cutting edge. This process will result in clean cuts, minimal chip re-welding, excellent cut finish, and most importantly longer tool life.
These Aluminium cutting endmills from Amana Tools have a specially developed ZrN coating. The Amana ZrN coating provides 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.
