Emuge-Franken expanded Top-Cut VAR end mill series.

Expanded Line of High-Performance End Mills

Jan. 6, 2022
New options for Top-Cut VAR variable-helix, carbide end mills include four, five, and six flutes, with or without corner radius, and more ball nose, stub, standard, and long-length sizes.

EMUGE-FRANKEN USA, manufacturers of high-performance end mills, taps, thread mills, drills, and other rotary tools, expanded the range of its multi-purpose high-performance end mills. Top-Cut VAR variable-helix, carbide end mills are equally effective in multiple job-shop applications as they are in production-cutting operations.

The Top-Cut VAR line is now available in four-, five-, and six-flute configurations, with or without corner radius, and ball nose, stub, standard, and long lengths in inch sizes – over  300 SKUs in total.

EMUGE-FRANKEN USA also can provide custom variations or tool modifications of Top-Cut VAR mills.

“Our TOP-Cut VAR tools are the best choice for manufacturers who need flexibility and performance,” stated Dan Doiron, milling products manager. “In addition, we are now manufacturing these end mills at our North American headquarters in West Boylston, Mass., to stringent EMUGE-FRANKEN Germany specifications and standards.”

Top-Cut VAR end mills feature distinctive flute and profile geometries optimized for long tool life and superior performance in both roughing and finishing applications. Variable-helix angle flutes provide vibration dampening and are precision-ground with advanced edge preparation to maximize chip evacuation.

A chamfer feature protects cutting edges to prevent chipping, and end mills with fully blended corner radiuses extend tool life, while providing improved surface finishes.

All Top-Cut VAR end mills have an ALCR PVD coating to enhance performance and extend service life in higher operating temperatures, and a proprietary sub-micro-grain carbide maximizes abrasion-resistance and durability.
