Dynamic Chip Control
The VariMill Chip Splitters series of end mills delivers excellent chip control allowing the tool to run in longer axial depth of cuts while productively diving into deep pockets in steel, stainless steel and high-temp alloy applications.
The end mill is available in 5- and 7-flute configurations, both of which feature unequal flute spacing for vibration dampening.
The end mill’s key design features are small gashes (chip splitters) along the cutting edge to break the chip into shorter sections without reducing the wall finish. These short chips are easier to evacuate from the cutting area, especially when machining deep cavities. The chip splitter feature can also prevent bird nesting and lessen the potential for tool breakage.
