Fullerton Tool’s new Alumamill G3 tool proved itself to be the class leader in high performance aluminum endmills at a Chicago area contract shop. The details:
5/16″ diameter standard length tool
6061 Alum / .880 deep slot / Took .220 at a time / 1500 SFM / 54 IPM / 500 Parts
The customer used 3 end mils on this job instead of an other 3 flute tool from a national distributor. Production was tripled.
The key to the performance was the wiper flat on the bottom of the tool, providing superior surface finish even at high speeds and feeds.
