Solid carbide milling cutters

Our solid carbide milling cutters stand for cost-effectiveness, the highest level of performance potential and product quality. Special cutting edge geometries that are tailored for the material to be machined ensure the technological advantage. 

The innovative HPC geometries, above all, ensure particularly quiet running, high machining volumes, high process reliability and a low machine load due to their uneven pitch and tooth spacing – even with extreme cutting values.

Our current highlights

Unique face geometry with integrated drill bit


The solid carbide milling cutter OptiMill-Alu-HPC-Pocket with three cutting edges has an integrated drill bit and is highly versatile. 

The OptiMill-Alu-HPC-Pocket carries out milling tasks very cost-effectively, especially the creation of pockets or plunging, including diagonal plunging.


At a glance

  • Available in a diameter range from 5.00 to 20.00 mm
  • Unique face geometry with integrated drill bit
  • Convex hollow grinding of the front cutting edge

Your advantages

  • High cost-effectiveness in the machining of aluminium: when milling pockets, plunging diagonally up to 45 degrees and when plunging (plunge milling)
  • High material removal possible up to 2xD
  • Highly versatile

Fast, cost-effective full slot milling


Larger cutting depth, better chip removal and a higher material removal rate – these are the goals that our specialists set themselves when developing the new OptiMill-Uni-Wave knurled roughing end mill. The result: a universal milling cutter that is particularly cost-effective thanks to its innovative geometry and high cutting data.


At a glance

  • High-performance roughing end mill for full slot milling
  • Available in a diameter range from 4.00 to 25.00 mm and in the 3xD, short, long and extra-long designs
  • Unique knurl geometry
  • Unequal spacing of the five cutting edges
  • Can be used for many workpiece materials

Your advantages

  • Performance level and quiet running significantly improved in comparison with existing HPC roughing end mills
  • Extremely high cutting rates
  • Long tool lives
  • Overall: supremely cost-effective machining

New: Overlong with corner radius

The OptiMill-Uni-HPC-Plus is ideal for cost-effective groove milling with maximum feed rates.
In 2019, we added the overlong design with corner radius to the product range.


At a glance

  • Available in a diameter range from 4.00 to 20.00 mm 
  • New: overlong design with various corner radii
  • Excellent chip removal thanks to particularly large chip spaces
  • Cutting edge rounding ensures low wear and high-quality surfaces
  • Unequal spacing and unequal pitch
  • Use of the entire cutting length

Your advantages

  • Low level of vibration, resulting in quiet running
  • Maximum possible feed rates
  • Excellent chip removal
  • The highest degree of cost-effectiveness

Maximum cost-effectiveness in roughing

The OptiMill-SPM-Rough is particularly suitable for roughing contours and pockets. It features a specially developed cutting edge profile for high-performance machining with significantly reduced cutting forces. The tool’s outstanding plunging properties lead to a noticeably reduced introduction of heat into the part. This benefits the condition of the surface.


At a glance

  • Available in a diameter range from 12.00 to 25.00 mm with internal cooling
  • Corner radius on each cutting edge fully pronounced
  • Polished chip flutes
  • Conical neck for greater stability
  • Innovative knurl geometry for short chips
  • Homogeneous point thinning enables ramping and plunge milling

Your advantages

  • Low-vibration roughing
  • Uniform removal of material by each tooth
  • Low cutting forces
  • The highest degree of cost-effectiveness

The ultimate surface quality in finishing


We have developed the OptiMill-SPM-Finish for finishing contours and pocket walls. The new finishing geometry especially for deep pockets and delicate component structures also works with large wrapping without retracting the tool. The OptiMill-SPM-Finish machines high cutting depths in one go.


At a glance

  • Available in a diameter range from 12.00 to 25.00 mm
  • Innovative cutting edge geometry for low-vibration cutting
  • Polished chip spaces
  • Long cutting edges

Your advantages

  • Perfect chip removal
  • Strong performance with high wrapping
  • Time saved by finishing with high cutting depths in one go
  • Low-vibration cutting due to optimised cutting edge geometry

Maximum surface quality with high cutting depths

The lengths 3xD and 5xD with a sharp corner design are new to the range of the OptiMill-Uni-HPC-Finish.


At a glance

  • Available in a diameter range from 4.00 to 25.00 mm in the 2xD, 3xD, 4xD and 5xD designs
  • Material removal rates up to ap = 5xD possible
  • Adapted flute profile with seven cutting edges and unequal spacing
  • New substrate with improved flexural strength and ductility
  • Entire cutting length can be used

Your advantages

  • Fewer vibrations, resulting in quieter running
  • Optimum chip removal
  • Maximum feed rates
  • The highest degree of cost-effectiveness

Highly-productive milling up to 5xD


The OptiMill-Tro milling cutters are available specially for trochoidal machining. They have five or seven cutting edges with optimised unequal spacing and geometry. These features in combination with the balancing of the cutting tool at G2.5 ensure reduced vibrations and high surface quality levels. Chip breakers that are specific to the workpiece material guarantee trouble-free chip removal. The product range includes milling cutters for the machining of steel, cast steel, stainless steel, titanium and high-alloyed steels as well as for hard machining.
