[Abstract]: End mills are multiple-tooth cutters designed for cutting materials by feeding the work piece to a rotating cutter. They have cutting edges on the face end as well as on the periphery, and may be single or double end construction. The company in which one of the authors works has been constantly improving and developing innovative and high performances end mills cutters to constantly support the various aspect of engineering industries by providing them with the latest technologies, tooling solutions and high performances end mill cutters.
This paper reports the design and development of a multi-purpose carbide end mill (MP-CE) to suit all kinds of cutting processes which will uncover the background information on different kinds of end mill structures, tool materials and various surface treatments on the cutter. The MP-CE was a successful design; it helps in reducing production cost, production time, tooling cost, labour cost and speeds up the manufacturing processes; it will also contribute a generous profit margin to the company making it.
