Benefits of Hollow Milling
Low cost, rapid production tooling easily adapted for your needs.

Hollow mills and other tooling from Genesee Manufacturing offer many advantages over single point turning or interpolation methods, particularly on high production runs. These advantages include:

  • Multiple blades or insert holders allow you to triple your feed rate.
  • Machining from the end of the part allows you to encapsulate the part, achieve balanced cutting action and hold concentricity and tolerances.
  • Adjustability often results in the ability to produce a range of part sizes using a single tool body.
  • Our special tools allow you to perform what would otherwise be separate or secondary operations simultaneously at one station in one pass.
  • Genesee tools are easy to set and adjust.
  • Our blades can be easily ground per our instruction in a simple fixture, or we offer regrinding services.
  • GEN-DEX hollow mills offer a throwaway indexable insert alternative to blades where complex forms or sharp corners are not required.
  • Genesee blades can be reground dozens of times and are then replaceable.
  • Standard products can be altered to suit customer requirements.
  • Form blades with single or multiple chamfers and radii are produced to order.
  • We will provide shank type and size to your specifications including over spindle mounting, face mounting, face plate mounting or other requirements.
  • Special holders, adapters, internal tools and the like can be manufactured and/or supplied where appropriate.
