Tooling/Cutting Turning/Milling

West Boylston, Massachusetts – Emuge Corp. has introduced an advanced line of end mills featuring unique geometry designed specifically for the high-performance machining of turbine and bladed components. Emuge Turbine End Mills offer reduced cycle times and long tool life in challenging forms and materials, including titanium, nickel alloys, and aluminum alloys.

For machining components with challenging geometries, Emuge Turbine End Mills have a stable design including on the tools featuring a tapered flute construction. The end mills feature PVD-applied, highly hard and heat-resistant coatings, and a newly developed geometry that enables aluminum machining.

The Emuge Turbine End Mills Line includes a wide range of Taper Ball tools that feature a sub-micro grain carbide substrate and an HA cylindrical shank. The 3°, 4°, 6°, and 8° Taper Ball tools have 2- and 3-flute designs, and the 17.5° has 3 flutes. Polished flutes in the 3°, 4°, 6°, and 8° tools promote chip evacuation in aluminum alloys. Coating options for the Taper Ball tools include ALCR for additional tool life in titanium alloys, high temperature alloys, stainless steel and aluminum alloys, and TIALN for heat and abrasion resistance in a wide range of materials such as stainless steel, steel alloys, cast iron, and other ferrous metals.

Taper Torus end mills include 3°, 4°, 6°, and 8° sizes featuring 2 highly polished flutes, sub-micro grain carbide, and have a torus cupped-radius end design for maximum step-over lengths. ALCR coating is standard, and TIALN coatings are available.

A Long 8° Taper Torus style also features a torus cupped radius. The cutting flutes are tapered for increased efficiency in a range of designs from 5 to 15 flutes. The Long Taper Torus tools are TIALN coated for maximum tool life and include axial coolant through capability.

The Emuge Turbine End Mills Line includes a Torus long-length tool style which features variable flute spacing for low vibration milling. The tools are available in designs ranging from 5 to 9 flutes and have corner radii of 1.0mm or 2.0mm. Torus long length end mills are TIALN coated for maximum tool life and include coolant through capability.
