Slot Drills

Slot drills are a type of cutting tool used in milling machines to create slots, grooves, and other features on a workpiece. It is a cylindrical tool with two or more flutes, which are the cutting edges that remove material as the tool rotates. Slot drills are typically used to create slots or channels with a specific width and depth, such as keyways in shafts or channels for wiring or piping. The tool is designed to plunge into the material and cut sideways, creating a slot with a flat bottom. Slot drills are commonly made from high-speed steel or carbide, and are available in a range of sizes and shapes to suit different milling applications.
