For the high performance machining of tough materials and aerospace alloys, ITC has now launched its new 6051 Cyber Series End Mill range.

The new series of solid carbide square end cutters incorporates a long length, straight shank solid carbide cutter with an unequal flute spacing and Cupro coating.

The new flute geometry provides improved material removal rates and stability whether the customer is machining steel, aerospace alloys and additional difficult to machine materials. Combined with the new Cupro coating, the geometry of the 6051 Series has been tested to provide end users with a long reaching cutter that eliminates problems inherent in long series cutting tools.

The right hand helix and cutting series is available in 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20mm diameters with each diameter offering the option of a square end, 0.5, 0.75 or 1mm radius. The various radius options serve to further enhance tool life and eliminate potential chipping in extremely difficult applications. The respective cutting diameters have a machining length of 18, 24, 30, 36, 50 and 60mm with an overall length from 75 to 150mm.
