We have kept pace with ever changing technology, very strict CNC tooling quality demands and standard tolerances accepted by the aerospace industry and the Department of Defense. We have aggressively pursued greater end mill consistency, durability and performance. Come, see for yourself.
It has always been our mission to provide superior performing products which solve complex machining challenges for the metalworking industry. We are dedicated to our customers and the industry as a whole and combine ongoing, continuous improvement processes with thousands of hours of new tool development per year. With our senior staff members alone, we have over 250 years of combined industry commitment. This lead-by-example culture has allowed us to provide exceptional customer service, build long lasting customer relationships and manufacture the highest performing end mills and cutting tools in the industry.
Conical Tool Company believes that excuses will only satisfy the person using them. That’s why you won’t be getting any from us. We recognize that our loyal customer base is why we are in business. While every company strives for perfection, it’s much more important how we treat you if something goes wrong. Our team is trained to provide exceptional service, insuring accuracy and timeliness while providing a high level of professionalism. We know that a single day of downtime can cost a company thousands of dollars when they are waiting on a replacement end mill or cutting tool. That’s why we stock over 1,000 parts and offer same day shipping of our in stock items.
The reason Conical Tool Company is a class ahead from all other standard carbide cutting tool and tapered end mill manufacturers is our history of innovation. Since our beginning nearly 70 years ago, we’ve created eight different patents improving the performance of our tools. The constant helix variable tool with variable lead design that was introduced by Conical Tool back in the 1940′s was based on a continual calculus formulae, which has never been duplicated. We know that we must never forget our history and where we came from. Innovation was our past and innovation is our future. We have added new tooling lines, new product offerings, smaller tooling with less chatter, high-tech coatings, specialty tooling which reduces cycle time and eliminates tool changing, and aerospace grade tooling. Moving forward with the newest CNC machining centers available, optical scanning and equipment will allow us to not only keep up with the changes in the metalworking industry, it will allow us to lead those changes. If you need any assistance for your end mill application, please contact us.
Premium performance and specialty end mills, manufactured in the USA, without the premium price.
Conical Tool Company manufactures a wide range of standard, specialty, performance and custom end mills for customers all across the metalworking industry. With thousands of stock items in a wide range of high speed steel and premium micrograin carbide, most orders are able to be shipped the same day, with few exceptions. Our distributor network reaches across the country and across borders so you’ll be able to have a local expert help you get the most out of your tooling choice.
In the event you are unable to find a tool to meet your application needs or desire to combine multiple processes into a single cutting tool, Conical Tool has the experts available to consult with your team and design the tool to your exact specifications. With dedicated machines, custom built CNC machines not found elsewhere and a staff with hundreds of combined years of experience in the industry, we are a trusted supplier to some of the most demanding industries and customers.
MEET OUR TEAM
Our employees are a team of experts. We have the distinct advantage of having and retaining employees with a vast wealth of experience and provide in-shop cross position training in a way few companies match. Our senior level employees on the production floor each have 20-30 years of end mill production under their belts. Combined, they have more than 250 years. We believe that says volumes for how we stay ahead of the crowd. Our experts have turned out to be our greatest asset when one considers the quality differences between our end mill manufacturing environment and the competitions. With cutting tool engineers on staff who can develop complex programs to machine precision carbide end mills with the highest tolerances, we are always the go-to resource for our customers when technical experience is required.
- Advanced Materials Selection (AMS) for difficult to machine workpiece materials.
- Advanced Coatings Selection (ACS) for improved microfinishes, performance and tool life.
- Custom Tooling Design for combining multiple processing into one tool.
- In stock specialty tooling not easily found elsewhere.
- Inspection reports for critical tolerance cutting tools.
CUSTOM TOOLING PROCESS
IDENTIFY APPLICATION METHOD
Through careful analysis of the part, mold or fixture workpiece our experts are able to determine the most efficient method of material removal and proper finish. Working backwards, we design a manufacturing process which optimizes performance, improves cycle time and promotes quality.
ANALYZE DESIRED OUTCOME
Speed, quality, quantity and expense are the biggest determining factors in the results of a custom tooling request. By asking the right questions and listening to our customers we can find the right fit and balance to create value.
DETERMINE PERFORMANCE VALUE LEVEL
Enhancements can always be made, but don’t always deliver value. Often times a standard tool with a slight modification can perform in nearly the same way as an engineered custom tool without excess cost and increased lead times. We pride ourselves on not only being an expert resource for your custom tooling needs, but in being a fair and honest partner in building value through the entire supply chain.
SELECT ADVANCED PRODUCT MATERIAL
Once the workpiece process, material and performance is determined, we can analyze the properties and cost of the available grades of high speed steel and micrograin carbide composites. Comparing tool life expectancy, durability and machining time allow a perfect fit.
Seeing is believing. That’s why we’ve included testimonials and real-life reviews of our tool performance and cost reductions. Collaboration has always been our key to success. We’ve included profiles of some of our partnered distributors and their stories of how both our tools and our technical expertise has helped their manufacturing customers.
TRADE & MARKET
Nearly 7,000 distributors worldwide and hundreds of thousands of end users can’t be wrong.
The manufacturing and materials industry is changing at an unprecedented pace and simply saying we supply tools to the metalworking industry would leave out a large portion of our customer base. Our tools have been used in every application imaginable, from sculptural ice carving to precision manufacturing of custom nuclear reactor parts. A few of the industries we serve are:
Tool & Die
Dept. of Defense
Casting & Foundries
Furniture / Wood
