The SwiftCarb AV05003BU005TC00 RampMill is the fastest way to rough aluminium with a 0.5″ diameter tool. Used with trochoidal and Controlled Engagement Tool Paths, it achieves much higher material removal rates than standard solid carbide tools. By ramping up to NINE times greater angles than a standard end mill, the RampMill reaches the bottom of the pocket much faster. Entering the center of the pocket optimizes the cutter path, and reduces time spent retracting & re-entering the material, to drastically reduce cycle times.
- Because RampMill is designed specifically for Controlled Engagement Tool Paths, it outperforms other tools when using these strategies.
- RampMill’s end geometry allows for ramping as steep as 17° in aluminum, up to 2x diameter in depth.
- Core designed for optimum strength to handle the highest tool loads, truncated roughing radius adds corner strength.
- Optional center coolant hole delivers coolant or air, blasting chips away and eliminating re-cutting, to dramatically increase tool life.
