The R&D department at ITC has added to the 3051 Series by offering a selection of corner radii, as well as the existing tools with wiper flats. Like the square-end 3051 Series, the extended line is available in diameters of 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20mm diameters.

The 3 to 5mm diameter tools are offered with corner radii from 0.25 to 1mm in 0.25 increments whilst diameters from 6mm and above offer corner radii that also includes 1.25, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4 and 5mm depending upon the chosen tool diameter.

ITC says that by adding a wide variety of corner radii, it is making the 3051 Series suitable for multi-axis machining and the profile milling of intricate features that are beyond the reach of standard length end milling tools.
