Cutting Honeycomb 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 Honeycomb end mills with unique ZrN Coating are designed to produce minimum failures in honeycomb reducing issues with layer separation and loss of mechanical strength.
46306 & 40304 are intended to hog honeycomb. The geometry allows for shredding of the honeycomb.
46302 & 40301 are compression cutters for the honeycomb. They will provide a burr-free top surface providing the material is thicker than the ‘Compression Length’
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 tool geometry that combines both high abrasion resistant substrates and tactile fluting. This will result in clean cuts, minimal chip re-welding, excellent cut finish, and most importantly longer tool life.
ZrN Coated endmills from Amana Tool have productivity in mind. By preventing the build-up of material in the flutes and having a much harder cutting edge over standard carbide, these ZrN Coated endmills provide a better cut and have an extended tool life.
Use this End Mill to cut
