The Super Long Reach End Mill tools have an even longer reach for the really hard to reach areas. They have standard flute lengths with a relief grind after the flutes to allow you to continue your cut or plunge without hitting the shaft of the tool on the wall of the part or mold.
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 an UpCut bit?
UpCut bits allow for rapid cuts since the tool clears the chips away from the material. While Ideal for cutting thicker materials, this type of tool is not recommended for thinner or softer materials. They are more likely to tear the top surface with the cutting edges because they’re pulling the wood fibers up while cutting. When cutting laminated materials, such as plywood with a thin top veneer, that can matter a lot. This type of bit is used whenever the best finish is needed on the bottom side of a part.
