In order to stay competitive, the pressure is on aerospace manufacturers to control costs and increase production rates while delivering high quality and precise tolerances.

When machining aerospace components, you need cutting tools with a long tool life when run at extremely high speeds. You also need to significantly reduce chatter for an improved surface finish. SGS has the tools you need to do all this...and more.

Improve Surface Finish: The Z-Carb End Mill with Patented Unequal Helix Geometry achieves incredibly high material removal rates while providing excellent surface finish. With design features that reduce chatter, the Z-Carb may actually eliminate the need for a secondary finishing operation.

Evacuate Chips: The ICe-Carb Internal Coolant Drill for Drilling Depts up to 8xD achieves higher cutting parameters and greater chip control for deep hole drilling.

Effectively Machine Aluminum: Effective machining of light metals like aluminum requires a tool with built in features and special geometry designed to minimize built-up edge and provide excellent chip evacuation. SGS is the original pioneer of cutting technology for aluminum end mills:

Ski-Carb: Design features include a circular land for variable speed and feed rates without chatter, a primary/secondary flute wall construction for minimizing chip interference, 45° high helix angle, stub lengths and corner radii options. Ski-Carb is available with Ti-NAMITE-B (TiB2) for enhanced tool life.

 S-Carb: Available in a variety of 2 and 3 flute selections, as well as Ti-NAMITE-B (TiB2) coating, S-Carb features an engineered flute design for effective chip removal at high feed rates, lower cutting forces and improved balance at high spindle speeds.

Tackle Difficult Materials: SGS has introduced a new program designed specifically to address the unique challenges of cutting Composite materials.  The unique qualities of Composites requires special consideration to the substrate, geometry, edge conditions and manufacturing techniques that conventional cutting tools have a difficult time addressing. The new tools are available with our own Di-NAMITE coating specifically formulated for high demanding abrasive applications.
