Alu-Cut

Aluminum Alloys

The Alu-Cut series includes tools made from solid carbide and particularly developed for the process-reliable volume machining of wrought aluminum alloys with up to 5% silicon content. Materials with higher silicon content should preferably be machined with coated tools such as CRN which is standard with Alu-Cut.

Characteristics:

  • Variable flute spacing for vibration dampening
  • Available with WR roughing profile for higher metal removal rates
  • Specialized flute geometry for machining aluminum
  • Alu-Cut bright finished carbide end mills have a polished finished that helpd reduce chip welding
  • Tool shanks are held to h5 tolerance and have a roughened surface (non-polished) for greater gripping force
  • Chip breaker designs help reduce cutting force and reduce heat generation
