Vega Brand Solid Carbide Deep Ball End Mills

VEGA TOOL CORPORATION recently introduced its first Solid Carbide Deep Ball End Mill offering for semi-finishing and finishing operations with a fine sub-micron substrate, ideal for machining hardened steels. The GTL offering continues the long tradition of quality tools at competitive pricing by Vega Tool Corporation.

The GTL line of solid carbide deep ball end mills from Vega Tool are S/DG coated for extremely hard material up to 55Rc. The fine grain substrate performs well in tool steels, mold steels and hardened steels. The S/DG coating and geometry excels in rib cutting with less deflection than other higher priced end mills.

The special ball nose geometry allows for semi-finishing and finishing applications in standard stock sizes from 0.2mm to 6.0mm and with the extended neck lengths, makes the GTL end mill ideal for deep cavity work. Shank diameter comes in two sizes: 4mm and 6mm.

With a limited introduction at the end of 2013 and at the beginning of 2014, the GTL end mill exceeded expectations in a variety of applications at many mold shops. Excellent repeatability with confidence to run long hours unattended, combined with a very attractive and competitive selling price has made the GTL end mill the premier tool among the high-end competition.
