Adding combination type of a lens and barrel

Special shape end mill for finishing

[GP1LB type of GALLEA series]

Mitsubishi Hitachi Tool

Mitsubishi Hitachi Tool added insert of “GP1LB type” to deformed end mill “GALLEA series “.

The end surface incorporates a lens R blade, and the side surface incorporates a barrel R blade shape, thereby realizing high-efficiency finishing.

The machining pitch is increased by about 1.4 times as much as a ball end mill of the same tool diameter.

The shape of the corner R between the end surface and the side surface is also reconsidered, and it is easy to use not only with 5-axis machining but also the 3-axis machining.
