Solid Ceramic End Mills

Greenleaf Corporation has announced XSYTIN-360, a new line of high-performance solid ceramic end mills.

"XSYTIN-360 end mills combine Greenleaf's phase-toughened XSYTIN-1 substrate with a unique cutting geometry that offers 10x higher productivity and increased cost savings," said a company spokesperson. "The strength of the material allows the user to apply chip loads similar to solid carbide end mills with higher speeds common to ceramic machining."

Greenleaf's XSYTIN-1 material, introduced in 2016, was engineered to machine a wide variety of materials. "The structure of this phase-toughened ceramic exhibits high wear resistance and outstanding thermal shock resistance, which makes the XSYTIN-360 end mills highly predictable, very versatile, high-performance products," said the spokesperson.

According to the company, XSYTIN-360 end mills are effective when machining a variety of materials including high-temperature alloys, 3D-printed sintered high-temperature alloys, hardened steels, ductile cast irons and compacted graphite iron (CGI). "In hardened steels specifically, the tool life of XSYTIN-360 end mills has proven to be equal to high-performance carbide end mills when run at high-end speeds (11,460 RPM), while also removing over 73 cubic inches (over 1200 cubic cm) of material," said the spokesperson.

According to the company, features and benefits of XSYTIN-360 end mills include:

  • The flute design minimizes cutting forces, which reduces vibrations and optimizes tool life.
  • XSYTIN-1 ceramic material provides high strength and wear resistance at increased feedrates.
  • Four-flute design allows for maximum material removal in slotting, pocketing and profiling applications.
  • Overall length of the end mills provides the option for regrind capabilities.
  • A broad application range means numerous machining centers are capable of running these end mills.

XSYTIN-360 inch and metric end mills are available. They are suited for machining materials in the aerospace, automotive, die & mold and power generation industries.
