Increase performance with or without coolant. Solid carbide end mills that perform best in high heat applications.
Best performance requires maximum heat at cutting edge to oxidize aluminum in coating. Run dry where possible. The unique properties of AlTiN coating transfers most of the heat to the chips rather that the cutting tool, extending cutting tool life in high temperature alloys.
Application Materials: Aerospace materials, Stainless Steel 400, Heat-treated Steels, Die Molds, Heat-resistant Alloys, Nickel and Cobalt Base Alloys, Titanium, Cast Iron (gray, nodular and austempered).
