High performance tools

To meet the highest quality standards of its customers, Silmax offers optimised tools for high-performance milling technologies.

The whole range of tools is constantly upgraded based on the latest technological innovations. Leading products in the line are the Evolution end mills, made of solid carbide and designed for roughing and semi-finishing steels, with asymmetrical geometry and specific face sharpening for ramp milling up to an angle of 24°.

The 4S superfinishing-treated cutting edge of all end mills in the line make them particularly suitable for machining under extreme conditions and capable of ensuring an increase in productivity of about 30% compared with a conventional tool.

An example in the range is the 4-flute end mill 158, with unequal flute spacing and reduced core, which is particularly well-performing for machining titanium.



These tools have been specially designed to machine, at very high parameters, a wide range of:

  • low and high alloy steels;
  • cast irons;
  • stainless steels.


The high-performance Silmax end mills are used in several machining  operations, such as, for example, slot milling up to 1.5xD,  roughing and finishing side milling and even in trochoidal machining and extreme-angle ramp milling strategies.

Trattamento Silmax 4s

Silmax 4S treatment

For this type of tools, Silmax recommends its 4S Cutting-Edge Superfinishing as a treatment for surfaces and cutting geometries, which enhances the tool construction features, achieving:

  • a more homogeneous cutting edge;
  • higher wear-resistance and reduction of  cutting stress;
  • coating adhesion and resistance;
  • 30% productivity increase.
Alto Rendimento Rivestimento Balinit Alcrona

PVD coating

The coating used for these tools is Balinit® Alcrona Pro, a highly wear-resistant coating, offering excellent levels of hot hardness and thermal-shock stability.

Alcrona Pro guarantees excellent results in dry machining and at high cutting speeds.
