The 5-axis grinder picks up the programmed numbers and produces the final form very accurately and consistently.

Crest Cut Tools
Crest Cut Tools
"Crest cut" or "wave cut" are brand names of special types of tooling that allow users to mill difficult to machine materials such as titanium and Inconel with less horsepower. The wavy flute form and cutting edges are designed to lessen the effects of tool pressure by breaking up the chips into smaller pieces. The wave structure along the helix varies from flute to flute in conjunction with a staggered or unequal helix. This form greatly reduces the forces that are generated in end milling.
