  • What Is Face Milling and Why Should You Bother

    End Mills. Using an end mill to do face milling is often inefficient but can create some appealing patterns in your finish if that s what you re after. An end mill often comes to a sharp point at one corner and the bottom edge is usually at a 1° angle as it goes to the center so it doesn t overlap with the previous pass.

    The biggest challenge with ball nosed end mills of various kinds is slow nose speed. As you get closer to the tip the diameter on the ball gets smaller and smaller finally going to zero. As a result the cutter must perform over a wide range of surface speeds and chip loads at different depths in the cut.

     · The most common are flat end mills and ball end mills. Flat end mills will cut flat areas with no scallops. However they leave a terrace-like scallop on non-flat surfaces. Ball end mills will leave smaller scallops for the same stepover value on sloped surfaces but they will also leave scallops on flat areas. Models can be tooled with a combination of flat and ball end mills. If only one tool will be used
