NOTE: Both SBN twin-edge ball nose inserts and SBD back draft-style inserts fit these cutters.
Standard Shank End Mills (SBNEM) feature thru-hardened steel shanks and EDM pocket for optimum strength and accuracy. They are available in straight inch or metric sizes. Standard steel shank ball nose end mills can be saw cut to desired length.
Solid Carbide End Mills (SC-SBNEM) provide peak performance through reduced deflection increased stiffness, less chatter, and heat shrink toolholding capability. Wire EDM is recommended for cutting solid carbide shank ball nose end mills to length.
Carbide Core End Mills (CC-SBNEM) provide higher performance thanks to reduced deflection, increased stiffness, and less chatter. Carbide-core ball nose end mills are better suited to light-roughing applications than solid carbide shank tools. Wire EDM is recommended for cutting carbide core ball nose end mills to length.
Screw-On Modular Heads (SBNEM-MOD) are also available for industry-standard cutting systems.
* For SC-SBNEM, keep brazed joint a minimum of 2" away from heat shrink toolholder. SC (Solid Carbide Shank) tooling is suitable for FINISHING APPLICATIONS ONLY. SC tooling is NOT suitable for roughing and applications with significant heat.
