Production machines use a lot of tools in the course of a day but one tool they use very often is a Chamfer End Mill.
This machine tool can perform a lot of functions that were once done by several tools.
Five Jobs Done with One Chamfer End Mill
Machinists and production floor managers alike prefer using a Chamfer End Mill when it comes to different jobs to be done on a workpiece in a production environment. Chamfer End Mills are used for chamfering, beveling, deburring, spotting and countersinking.
Chamfering an Edge
After a workpiece has gone through production it oftentimes has sharp edges along each side that need to be eliminated and turned into a smoother, radius-edged surface. Chamfering eliminates the unwanted sharp edge making the workpiece easier and safer to handle.
Beveling an Edge
In some machine processes, it is necessary to completely remove an edge and create a bevel or slope from the top surface to the bottom surface. A Chamfer End Mill can do this easily by making a cut across the face of the surface that creates the sloping edge or bevel.
Deburring an Edge
Frequently, in metal production processes a small, protruding point of metal left along the edge of a workpiece surface. That metal along the edge is called a “burr” and it is important to remove the burr as it may affect production processes further downline or it may cause an injury to someone handling the workpiece. Using a Chamfer tool is an excellent way to eliminate or “deburr” any edge with unwanted burrs present.
Before a drill bit can penetrate a workpiece on a production line, it is a good idea to place a small indentation at the spot where the drill bit will contact the surface. Drill bits have a tendency to deflect or bend slightly when applied to flat surfaces. The deflection makes the point of the drill bit miss the target and the workpiece can be ruined because of the misplacement of the drill bit head. Spotting eliminates the problem of drill bits skipping across surfaces by placing a small indentation or “spot” on the surface so the drill bit can do its job without deflection or skipping.
Countersinking Drill Holes
One last, important job a Chamfer End Mill does is countersinking drill holes. Once a hole is drilled into the workpiece, it may be necessary to increase the size of the drilled hole at the surface so the hole can accept a bolt with a head on it that needs to be at or below the surface of the workpiece. This larger hole is drilled down onto the existing hole by using a Chamfer End Mill.
