Emuge Corp. (West Boylston, MA) offer Alu-Jet-Cut Solid Carbide End Mills that are uniquely designed for large-volume machining of aluminum. Developed in conjunction with major aircraft manufacturers, Alu-Jet-Cut tools are the new benchmark for material removal in monolithic airframe structural components manufacturing where, on average, up to 95 percent of the weight of a solid block of material is machined away. The tools have proved capable of twice the rate of material removal of any previously known carbide end mill. Alu-Jet-Cut end mills are well-suited for industries reliant on rapid material removal in aluminum, including mold and die, aerospace, automotive and machine tool manufacturing. Alu-Jet-Cut end mills are capable of cutting speeds in excess of 3,000 surface feet per minute. A tough, 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. Additionally, an innovative chip conveyor (chip breaker) provides control over chip shape and directional flow to increase chip evacuation capacity, thus 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 are offered in various corner radii, roughing and finishing designs. Roughing cutters are available with 3-flutes and finishing cutters with 3- and 4-flutes. All tools are made with through-coolant capability that is also suitable for minimum-quantity lubrication.
