Cut Type

  • Finishing cuts provide a smoother surface finish than general purpose or roughing cuts.
  • General purpose cuts can be used for a variety of applications and on a wide range of materials. They provide a smoother finish than roughing end mills.
  • Roughing cuts remove more material in less time than general purpose end mills, with minimal vibration (chatter). They create a rough finish that can be smoothed by a second finishing cut.
