Profiling End Mills: fullcut mill fcm type

fullcut mill fcm

Fullcut Mill FCM Type have a positive high rake cutting edge for both radial and axial directions, achieves smooth and quiet end milling. Fullcut Mills have a sharp cutting edge by both high radial and axial rake angles and positive rake angle offering high toughness in a highly rigid integral body. Indexable insert end mills with both excellent sharpness and toughness, achieving the performance of solid end mills.

Designed for shoulder, slot, and face milling.

Eccentric Relief Angle Eccentric Relief Angle

Eccentric Relief Angle


Providing an eccentric relief to the cutting edge has been standard for solid end mills since the 1970's and has become the traditional technique in solid end mills. The relief angle is kept small to provide increased strength to the cutting edge without reducing the top rake and sharpness.

Strong cutting edge reduces edge chipping.
