NEW dimensions of end mills in LC grade

By May 10, 2016 No Comments

We are glad to announce that we are increasing our program of 4 flute end mills in LC grade (AlCrN coated), page 64.

Now it is possible to get them as well in a long version in diameter 6, 8, 10 and 12 mm and in normal length in diameter 7, 16 and 20 mm.

All new items are already in stock.

Until now we have had these dimensions only in FC grade (TiAlN coated), page 75.

LC has the following advantages compared with FC:

  1. Better price, an average of about 10% cheaper.
  2. Better carbide, super micrograin instead of micrograin carbide.
  3. Better coating, a more modern coating that in most materials works better.
  4. Better tolerance, for example 0,03 instead of 0,05 mm on a diameter 8 mm tool.

How come that we are able to sell them to a better price when they have better carbide, coating and tolerance? The reason is that these tools are produced in bigger quantities.

As you can see you should choose LC tools as first choice, but the FC program has the advantage that it has more dimensions, especially 2 and 3 flute tools and with corner radius.
