Specially designed for Carving and Milling Plastic, Acrylic, Wood, Aluminum, Bronze, and many other materials.
These tools are coated with a proprietary high performance *Astra coating* that allows higher speed & feed rates as well as extended tool life & increased lubricity in abrasive material.
What is a Tapered Ball Nose bit?
Tapered ball nose end mills are the most commonly used tools for deep CNC carving in wood, plastic and metals. Their tapered profiles make them much stronger than equivalent straight-wall tools while providing more flute volume for efficient swarf removal in deep, single-pass machining operations. Our tapered ball nose end mills cut smooth 3D contours with reduced stepping, and minimal fuzzing.
Excellent for Cutting:
- Dimensional signage
- Precision 3D carving and modeling
- 3D contouring and profiling
- Cabinetry and furniture making
- 3D/2D millwork
- Great for deep profiling
