Achieve Rapid Harmonic-Free Stock Removal Rates with the Harmon-i-Cut High-Performance End Mill
This month we will focus on one of our most successful legacy tools, the 3400 Harmon-i-Cut end mill. Nearly two decades ago, we recognized the advancements in machining technology demanded increasingly aggressive machining operations to enhance productivity and reduce production costs. Advancements in spindle technology enabled greater spindle speeds while maintaining the necessary power to perform more aggressive cutting operations. With the greater acceptance and application of high-speed machining (HSM) practices in programming, spindle speeds were increased to a range which was greater than those traditionally used for an increase in material removal rates (MRR) over traditional tools. High-speed machining is achieved by increased axial depth of cut and higher spindle speeds, combined with constant chip loads requiring new high-performance tooling design.

What better way to extend value and precision to our customers than renewing your used tooling to factory specifications? In today's world of high performance tooling, simple regrinds can be much more than that. Varying helix's, rakes, flute spacing, edge preparation and coatings can be renewed by Fullerton to the exact same standards you enjoy on your new tools. Last month we spoke of Functional Value (see last months post at http://blog.fullertontool.com/functional-value-of-general-purpose-end-mills), this is the commitment we hold to you. Through initial engineering, tools are inherently designed around future regrind and reconditioning, adding an additional value. These inherent regrind characteristics are often overlooked when considering the initial cost of the tool. Fullerton not only encourages regrinds, but expects it.
Our primary purpose is to provide our customers with cost-effective, high-quality, solid carbide round tool solutions at competitive prices. In the past we have discussed our consistency in our processes, and foundational approach to tool designs.

Last month we talked about our foundational approach to provide tool development (which you can access at http://blog.fullertontool.com/our-foundational-approach-to-tool-design). This month we will dig further into the stages necessary to provide consistent quality and value to our customers.
Ever wondered how a tool is designed and developed? A lot of work occurs before a part ever touches a CNC machine. Find out about our foundational approach to tool design in this month's tool tip.
