Increasing program of End Mills
SmiCut is now increasing its program of LC End Mills with 3 and 4 flutes.
These end mills are now available in a short version in diameter 6, 8, 10 and 12. It means you now can order them in three different lengths for best productivity and economy.
All new items are already in stock.
Advantages with LC
LC has the following advantages compared with FC:
- Better price, an average of about 10% cheaper.
- Super micrograin instead of micrograin carbide.
- Better coating, a more modern coating that in most materials works better.
- Higher tolerance, for example 0,03 instead of 0,05 mm on a diameter 8 mm tool.
LC is the first choice
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.
