CNC machines and other machine shop equipment use Tapered End Mills to save time on their piecework. Due to the increasing complexity of mill work and the demands being placed on machine operations to create curved interior surfaces and hollowed-out spaces within the machined piece, Tapered End Mills make it possible to create these hard-to-create results.
Many CNC machine operations require a “long reach” tool which can make the desired curves and voids with greater ease, however, the longer the reach of the tool, the more deflection which can take place as the tool is being used. This is where Tapered End Mills make a big difference. Because of the design of the tool, the tapering of the steel making up the tool adds to the resistance to deflect or “bow” under pressure. That means the workpiece will have cleaner cuts, less debris accumulation on the End Mill, and the tool will last longer.
