Variable-flute end millWith a 50-year history steeped in mould-and-die cutting-tool innovations, Tewkesbury-based Quickgrind (www.quickgrind.com) has launched the QCut.

This solid-carbide four-flute high-performance end mill incorporates a variable-flute design and refined geometry.

Its flexibility makes it suitable for roughing and finishing operations, and its geometry design makes it suitable for slotting, profiling, HSM and HSC strategic milling, and trochoidal milling.

When machining steel and hardened alloys, users will benefit from productivity improvements with reduced costs. It can also be used for machining cast iron.

Quickgrind prides itself on its ability to meet the exact demands of its customers, so the QCut is not offered with specific dimensional parameters; it is available with overall lengths, flute lengths and neck lengths to meet the needs of the user.

Likewise, the shank and cutting diameter can be specified, as well as the corner radii. Whatever dimensions are selected, Quickgrind offers a full re-grind service to reduce the costs of this new range.

Users upgrading from their existing milling range to QCut will benefit from higher feeds and speeds as a result of the new geometry design, which evacuates chips efficiently.

This geometry suppresses vibration and harmonic effects, thereby improving surface finishes and enhancing material removal rates. Furthermore, the QCut is made from Quickgrind’s micro-grain substrate solid carbide, combined with the company’s latest coating technology, which improves wear-resistance and prolongs tool life.

Be seen in all the right places!
