· An end mill is a type of milling cutter, a cutting tool used in industrial milling applications. It is distinguished from the drill bit in its application,
geometry, and manufacture. While a drill bit can only cut in the axial direction, a milling bit can generally cut in all directions, though some
cannot cut axially.
· End mills are used in milling applications such as profile milling, tracer milling, face milling, and plunging.
