CNC Milling Rib Processing Cutters

Rib Processing is a type of milling application that is becoming more and more popular every day. Used by thousands of machinists, rib processing end mills are rapidly increasing in use due to their precision capabilities.

Rib processing is an excellent choice for removing serious obstructions in your part while still leaving sharp corners intact. This technique has the advantage of being able to cut on both faces and edges.

The Rib Cutter is used in injection molding and other high-speed milling processes, where intricate 3D shapes can be machined using the modern CAM software available nowadays on machines with high speeds.

The main advantage of rib cutters is their ability to mill small diameters with a long reach to machine very intricate components.

Our Rib Processing cutters have cutting diameters ranging from 0.1mm - 12mm.

Our Rib Processing Cutters

After numerous tests, we believe that our WB712P & WE712P range outperforms any other of it's kind. Our Widin range has some of the highest quality and best performing rib processing end mills in the industry. And it doesn't stop there, we also offer market leading prices. Our Rib Processing cutters have cutting diameters ranging from 0.1mm - 12mm.

What Is Rib Processing (2)

Our WB712P & WE712P range outperforms any other of its kind. Offering longer tool life, improved machining stability & better wear resistance due to W coating. Various shapes can be machined due to a wide range of neck lengths with the effective cutting length ranging from 0.2mm - 60mm, meaning more hard to reach places can be accessed. They are excellent for mold & die machining below HRc60 & pre-hardened steel, alloy steel & carbon steel. However, these cutters have also performed to the highest standard on Stainless Steels, HRSA & Non-ferrous Materials.
