Varied Speed and Feed
Circular Land reduces edge
aggressiveness for varied speed
and feed rates and allows for
milling into corners while
significantly reducing chatter.
Superior Chip Control
Ski Land with primary and
secondary flute wall construction
minimizes chip interference by
directing chips away from
secondary flute.
Optimal Rake
High Helix (45 degree) increases
effective rake for greater shear-
ing ability without reducing edge
strength.
Outstanding Rigidity
Short Length increases rigidity.
Maximum Chip Protection
Available Corner Radii offer addi-
tional protection against chipping.
Tight control of the circular land width
reduces edge aggressiveness, which
allows a wide variety of speed and
feed rates. It also allows for milling
into corners without chatter. Also
unique to the Ski-Carb is the primary-
secondary flute wall construction,
which reduces chip interference.
