Face Mills

Milling cutters are cutting tools designed for use in milling machines. They are able to remove material when moving in the machine or directly from the cutter's shape. A face mill is one type of mill cutter with the cutting edges located along its sides. They are most commonly used for creating a flat face on the surface of a workpiece. Multiple teeth distribute the chip load, allowing for very large and efficient face milling.

Types

Face mills are constructed from solid materials with additional holders and inserts that are usually disposable. They can be used with a variety of ends or tips including:
•Ball nose tips – the radius is one half of the cutter diameter, ideal for manufacturing female semicircle grooves


•Chamfer tip - produce an angled cut of chamfered edge on a workpiece


•Square end - for face mills that have a square or straight end


•Radius-tip - ends are straight flutes with ground radius on the tip



Specifications

To select a face mill, a number of things need to be considered including cutter size, finish and the construction, such as number of cutting edges (inserts).

Materials

The material of the face mill is important for understanding the level of cutting the machine can handle. Coatings can also provide additional protection against corrosion and abrasion and increase the overall lifespan of the tool.

Common materials are:
•Carbide - ideal for high-speed applications


•Cobalt - hard and robust


•Ceramic


•Diamond - extremely hard


•Steel - ideal for general metal machining
