Z-Carb AP | Series ZAP

With conventional end mills, the cutting teeth entering and exiting the material creates a natural rhythm that results in damaging harmonics. Harmonics produce a frequency that resonates through the entire tool, resulting in one of the most damaging forms of cutter wear known as chatter. Chatter degrades the quality of your finish. Until now, your only choice was to adjust your operating parameters to account for the limitations of your conventional end mill. With its patented, one of a kind geometry, the Z-Carb AP offers three stages of chatter suppression, resulting in the quietest, most stable milling experience available.

Rake Geometry

  • Variable rake geometry alters and controls the cutting dynamic taking chatter suppression to an unprecedented level.

Long Reach

  • Long reach design allows for deeper and faster cuts.
Fluting & Helix Angle
  • Unequal helix design changes the cutting angle to improve harmonic.
  • Unequal flute spacing helps to disrupt the rhythmic pattern created by the cutting edge helping to suppress damaging harmonics.
  • Specialized four flute design is engineered for strength, chip evacuation, and increased productivity over three and four flute end mills.
  • The structural design of Ti-Namite-X is adapted to meet a diverse range of applications; everything from high- and low-alloy steels to hardened materials (up to 65 HRC core hardness). Ti-Namite-X is suitable for operations that require high cutting speeds, high temperatures at the cutting edge, and high metal removal rates.
