1, 2, 3, 4, 5 end mill, what’s the difference and why is it important?

If you are new to the world of milling, the different terminology might be confusing. Ergo, what does the difference in number of teeth mean? The number in the SCT article number refers to the number of teeth in the tool. Each tool is designed for a specific purpose and the number of teeth is chosen accordingly. The general idea behind the number of teeth is: the more teeth a tool has the longer the tool life this specific tool has. However, one should not only consider this but also take into consideration that a specific material may require a distinct amount of teeth due to the application required for processing this workpiece properly. For machining aluminum we use a 1, 2, 3 or 4 flute tool while for trochoidal milling we use a 4 or 5 flute tool. This displays the difference that one can either select a tool for a specific material or for a certain application.
