A carbide ball nose finishing tool rotates relative to the workpiece to make circular slots and cavities for contoured surfaces, grooving and pocketing, or for complex shapes without sharp corners.
Used for 3D modelling, carving, fluting, routing slots with rounded bottoms or rounded inside corners.
The helical cutting edge reduces material contact.
Prima Tooling’s Ball Nose finishers are available in two, three and four flute as well as right and left hand rotation.
We hold a range of two flute ball nose finishers as stock, however, as we are a manufacturer we are able to produce these tools to any specification.
For safety any work piece must be securely clamped to avoid movement and lifting when routing.
Recommended Feed rates range from 10-25M/min
with MAX speeds of 14,000-24,000 RPM
