The 'Green' line of tooling is designed specifically for cutting wrought aluminum alloys.
The 'Chirper' line is a tight-tolerance 3D finishing tool which is intended for flanking; primarily using the side of the tool to generate final part geometry. This line is intended for machine tools with spindles capable of speeds up to 20K rpm.
'V' form tools are excellent for milling in confined areas and have optimal strength and stiffness properties for deep slotting and flanking. Typically combined with 5-axis simultaneous tool paths in the aerospace industry and for other complex forms, they are also commonly used on 3-axis machines for generating drafted walls; especially in the mold making industry.
