Ball End Mills Regal Cutting Tools

Ball end mills are used for drilling shallow holes, slotting a channel where a flat bottom is not required or most commonly used to produce multi-dimensional contours in molds or dies. The design of ball end mills forms a hemispherical cutting action identical to the diameter of the tool. Because of the shapes required in these products it’s common that multi axis machining
