In addition to smaller-diameter tools for high-performance milling and 140 new inch sizes, including a necked version for long-reach applications, the expansion also includes advanced helical chip splitters developed by Niagara Cutter to improve chip evacuation in even the most challenging applications. A special offset design is said to improve surface finish and make the tool an all-in-one end mill solution that can handle both roughing and finishing operations and is effective in materials ranging from steel to cast iron, from stainless steels to superalloys.
