End mills are one of the most widely used precision cutting tools in machine shops and manufacturing plants all across the globe. They are used for making precision holes, cutting and shaping different kinds of metals. Basically, they are a kind of milling cutter designed to absolute perfection, which is firmly held by the shank at one end and cuts with the opposite one. Although end mills look similar to the drill bits the working is somewhat different from the latter. Drill bits can make holes or cut only in the downward direction, but on the other hand, end mills are designed to cut sideways as well.
However, like drills, they are available in different kinds of materials, designs, styles and quality levels. The tools also come in a wide range of coatings. Similarly, the number of flutes on the end mills range from 2 to 8. According to the specific job, the proper selection and use of end mills is extremely essential to perform the task effectively. The tools are generally made out of High Speed Steel, Solid Carbide or Cobalt. HSS End Mills are one of the most preferred end milling cutters, given that HSS is the standard, basic element and comparatively inexpensive. HSS end mills are compatible with different kinds of materials and are mostly used for less challenging jobs.
