Milling cutter classification

Nov 05, 2018

Cylindrical milling cutter

Used for machining planes on horizontal milling machines. The teeth are distributed on the circumference of the milling cutter and are divided into straight teeth and spiral teeth according to the tooth shape. According to the number of teeth, there are two kinds of coarse teeth and fine teeth. Spiral tooth coarse-tooth milling cutter has a small number of teeth, high tooth strength and large chip space, suitable for rough machining; fine-tooth milling cutter is suitable for finishing.

Face milling cutter

Also known as disc milling cutter, it is used for vertical milling machine, end milling machine or gantry milling machine. It has cutter teeth on the end face and circumference, and also has coarse teeth and fine teeth. The structure has three types: integral type, insert type and indexable type.

End mill

It is used to machine grooves and step faces, etc. The teeth are on the circumference and end faces and cannot be fed in the axial direction during operation. When the end mill has a tooth that passes through the center, it can be fed axially.

Three-sided milling cutter

It is used to machine a variety of grooves and step faces with teeth on both sides and circumference.

Angle milling cutter

For milling angled grooves, there are two types of single and double angle milling cutters.

Saw blade milling cutter

It is used to machine deep grooves and cut workpieces with more teeth on the circumference. In order to reduce the friction during milling, there are 15'~1° secondary declinations on both sides of the cutter. In addition, there are keyway milling cutters, dovetail milling cutters, T-slot milling cutters and various forming cutters.

T-slot milling cutter

Used to mill T-slots.
