Carbide End Mills

Carbide end mills are amongst the most durable and long-lasting available on the market today. Alongside polycrystalline diamond (PCD), tungsten carbide is the toughest material to craft end mills, drills bits, and tool tips from. Carbide end mills provide a high-performance solution for all manner of tooling jobs, including slotting, finishing, roughing, and profiling. Tungsten carbide beats out cobalt-steel alloys, commonly referred to as ‘high-speed steel’, when it comes to durability, and carbide end mills are suitable for both general purpose and application specific geometries.

Carbide end mills can perform multiple engineering tooling tasks, and are suitable for use for a range of applications. Suitable applications include profiling, plunging, counter boring, slotting, contouring, and shouldering.

Our carbide end mills are available in many options, with a vast range of stock sizes. Amongst the myriad models we have available are multiple fluting options, such as the two-flute slot drill, which is most often used for milling non-ferrous materials and assisting with swarf removal.

We also have three and four-flute carbide end mills in a range of types including chamfered, ball nose, straight end, and corner radius. These end mills are more suited for milling steel or stainless steel due to the increased strength that comes with additional flutes. Alongside these options we are also able to supply a range of high-quality micro end mills, roughers, and even six and seven-fluted cutters.

Our carbide end mills are crafted to an impeccable standard and are incredibly durable, resilient, and heat resistant. With appropriate coatings to suit the application required, carbide end mills are perfect for machine tooling hard materials such as steel, stainless steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals, titanium, and super alloys.

Prima Tooling’s impressive range of carbide end mills are available in two fantastic ranges: the Tecline Range and the Harmony Range. Tecline carbide end mills are suitable for standard milling and engineering tooling tasks, from milling to slotting, profiling, contouring, and cutting. The Harmony Range, on the other hand, offer a more premium, high-performance range of  carbide end mills for a much higher metal removal rate.
