CNC Mills & Cutting Tools

What Makes DATRON CNC Tools the Best for Precision, High-Speed Milling?

  • High-quality micro-grain carbide to provide superior tool life

  • Precision engineered to achieve superior cutting and finish

  • Designed for high-speed milling

  • A multi-stage grinding process delivers extra sharp, polished edges for burr-free machining, reducing or eliminating the need to hand-finish parts

  • Patented tool geometries that decrease cycle times, improve finishes, and boost productivity

  • Universal fit and compatible with most CNC machines

End mills are the most commonly used and versatile CNC cutting tools. Single and double flute end mills are great for high-speed bulk material removal and general milling.  Higher flutes will produce a finer finish and remove more material per rotation.

Milling Thread Mill

Milling Thread Mill

For machining threads, these milling thread mills cover both ranges of Metric and Imperial sizes. This design of thread mill has a combination end mill and thread mill, so you can mill and thread the hole at the same time. Because of the built-in end mill, threading blind holes can have limitations. These tools are perfect for aluminum, brass, plastics, exotic composites and any soft metals. They are not recommended for steel.

Drills

For precision holes, using a drill compared to helixing with an end mill is a better solution. A drilled hole will give you a consistent diameter all the way through the material, while an end mill deflects slightly and creates a tapered hole. Also, for a high volume of holes, using a drill is much faster. If you need to a deep hole, sometimes a drill is your only option due to the longer cutting lengths.
