For slotting applications, the new offering is also available in three flute flat end mills, which include a high helix angle. The short and medium two flute ball nose end mill type is specifically suited for shops looking to save on cost on semi-finishing and finishing applications.
TaeguTec’s ApexMill economical line comes in a diameter range from 3 to 20 mm while optimised grades applied to the end mills includes the TT5525 grade for flat types and the TT5515 grade for ball nose types.

In one case study conducted at TaeguTec’s headquarters, the ApexMill recorded a 100 percent increase in tool life versus a leading competitor’s similar tool. During another case study in which, like the other test, all cutting conditions were the same, TaeguTec’s ApexMill witnessed a 25 percent increase in tool life.
