To provide the right tool ACT work with OEM brands such as Garr Tools to solution their cutting tools to you.

Garr Tools H45 series end mill was successfully tested at a aerospace material & product machine shop in Winsconsin. The test result show that:


  • Previously the customer was not using any Garr Tool product on these parts. With the introduction of Garr's new high feed H45 end mill the engineer was very happy with the performance of Garr Tool’s new HiFeed end mill over the 304L stainless steel job.
  • The ¼” end mill ran very quiet and produced an excellent part.  We ran equivalent feeds & speeds however Garr Tool’s HiFeed end mill was able to take a heavier axial depth of cut, resulting in shorter cycle time.  

  • Garr Tool’s 1/8” HiFeed end mill also did an excellent job on the 15-5 stainless steel.  Along with much faster feeds & speeds, the programmer of the machine said Garr Tool’s new HiFeed end mill was much quieter than the competitions end mill which resulted in a better finish.

The end result was profit for the customer – equivalent or faster feeds & speeds, shorter cycle times, better part finish & much more competitive tool cost.
