Emuge Corp. (West Boylston, MA) offers Alu-Jet-Cut solid carbide end mills designed for large-volume machining of aluminum and are well-suited for industries reliant on rapid material removal in aluminum, including mold and die, aerospace, automotive and machine tool manufacturing.  They are capable of cutting speeds in excess of 3,000 surface feet per minute. A wear-resistant carbide substrate helps resist vibrations that could otherwise lead to premature chipping of cutting edges at the extremely high cutting speeds typical of the Alu-Jet-Cut range of operation. A chip conveyor (chip breaker) provides control over chip shape and directional flow, enabling stable operations with full radial engagement (slot milling), at 1 times diameter depth-of-cut to achieve material removal rates in excess of 650 cubic inches per minute.   The tools undergo a specialized grind/polish process that provides a high quality surface within the flutes to dramatically reduce the tendency for aluminum build-up or “cold welding” along the cutting edges.  Alu-Jet-Cut end mills also feature progressive flute spacing and a unique shank design. The tools are offered in various corner radii, roughing and finishing designs.
