Emuge-Franken expands TOP-Cut VAR line

Emuge-Franken has expanded the range of TOP-Cut VAR, its most popular multi-purpose high performance end mills.

TOP-Cut VAR end millsFeaturing unique geometry and coating, TOP-Cut VAR end mills are the most versatile variable helix carbide solution in the industry, as equally effective in multiple job shop applications as they are in challenging production cutting operations.

The TOP-Cut VAR line is now available in 4,5, and 6-flute configurations, with or without corner radius, and ball nose, stub, standard and long lengths in inch sizes, over 300 SKU’s in total. In addition, Emuge-Franken USA 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,” said Dan Doiron, Emuge-Franken USA Milling Products Manager. “In addition, we are now manufacturing these end mills at our North American headquarters in West Boylston, MA U.S.A. to stringent EMUGE-FRANKEN Germany specifications and standards.”

TOP-Cut VAR end mills feature unique flute and profile geometries optimized for long tool life and superior performance in both roughing and finishing applications. Variable helix angle flutes provide extensive 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 advanced ALCR PVD coating that enables outstanding performance and extended life in higher operating temperatures, and a proprietary sub-micro grain carbide provides maximum abrasion resistance and durability.
