Destiny Tool product data now available for download to your CAD, CAM, & ERP system in ISO 13399, GTC format via MachiningCloud
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 18, 2016 ― MachiningCloud, an Industry 4.0 solution provider helping customers make better tooling decisions, is proud to announce the immediate availability of Destiny Tool, a supplier of high performance end mills for use in non-ferrous and high temperature alloys, on the MachiningCloud App.
Destiny Tool’s customers can now find Destiny’s product data on MachiningCloud, eliminating the need to search through printed catalogs, telephone calls and multiple websites to find optimal tooling. By using ISO13399 and GTC, the Destiny Tool product data residing on MachiningCloud is also easily imported into any shop software supporting these standards.
ISO 13399 is an international standard for the digital representation of cutting tool data. GTC (Generic Tool Catalog) is a complement to ISO 13399 for vendor neutral classification of cutting tools and data file structures.
For cutting tool manufacturers who do not have an ISO/GTC catalog, MachiningCloud provides the service to map their data into the standards and publish it on the Cloud. In addition, any cutting tool catalog that is already in ISO/GTC format may be easily loaded onto MachiningCloud. As a result, in both cases, always up-to-date cutting tool product data is available to everyone. The result is significant time savings and optimal tooling choices for customers when searching, selecting and sharing cutting tools for jobs; and when building assemblies and exporting the tooling data to CAD/CAM, ERP and other shop software.

End-mill tool with high and low helical flutes and related method for rough cutting and finishing a workpiece
We've been asked to explain what exactly is a Double Variable Helix many many times. Basically, the helix angle of an individual flute changes from a low helix to a high helix and in some cases to a super high helix as you follow the helix line up and individual flute. In addition to that each flute has an incrementally different start which we define as a double variable helix or DVH. Below is some detail on one of the patents of the DVH.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
1. Technical Field of the Invention
In general, the present invention relates to machining of a workpiece, More particularly, the present invention relates to end-mill tools for milling a workpiece and a related method.
2. Background of the Invention
Rotary cutting end-mill tools are used for various machining operations on workpieces. Such machine operations are generically referred to as milling operations and include the forming of slots, keyways, pockets, and the like. Several considerations related to end-mill tool design include time for completing a machining operation, amount of material removed in a cut, quality of the cut, and wear on the tool itself during the milling operation.
The various machining operations performed with an end-mill tool can be performed in a “roughing” mode (rough cutting) and a “finishing” mode (finishing cutting). During roughing, material is removed from a workpiece at a relatively high rate (e.g., depth of cut), but with a relatively rough surface finish. Finishing involves the removal of material from a workpiece at a relatively low rate, but with a relatively smooth surface finish. Generally, these two operations (roughing and finishing) are antithetical to one another, and require two operations with two different end-mills.
End-mill tools are formed from materials such as tungsten carbide, high speed steel, ceramic, and other advanced materials and coatings and typically include a “shank” portion, a “body” portion and a “point”. The shank portion is located towards one end of the end-mill tool and is generally cylindrical (but may be tapered) for engagement by a spindle of a milling machine. In use, the milling machine rotatably drives the end-mill tool about its longitudinal axis. The body portion of the end-mill tool is located between the shank and the point. The point is formed at an opposite end of the tool from the shank portion, and typically includes one or more cutting edges.
To manufacture an end-mill tool, a grinder is typically used to grind a flute face and a corresponding cutting edge on the body of the end-mill tool. The grind (grinding operation) typically starts from a position adjacent an end of the body portion and continues to a point at or near the interface of the body portion and the shank portion, commonly referred to as an “inception location”. The grind forms a desired helical flute face and/or helical cutting edge. Prior art end-mills typically have continuous helical flutes with continuous cutting edges helically extending from the inception location to the point (or vice-versa). The flutes function primarily for chip removal, in a manner similar to the helical flutes found on an ordinary drill bit.
A little throwback to a 2011 customer YouTube video.... Below are excepts from the a thread on Practical Machinist talking about it.
"So I'm at my buddy's shop Saturday morning and I tell him about a recent thread on this board about machining aluminum dry. He asks me what I think the upper limits are for doing this and glancing over at his pretty Doosan VMC I reply "Let's find out".
I knew I was gonna get beat up pretty bad shooting video from this angle so I fashioned a bandanna from shop rags, wore gloves, glasses, and yes.. even cut a hole in a garbage bag and wore it with pride.
Anyway, here is what .036 per rev with a 1/2" tool looks like. The tool could take more but the spindle was at 133%.
No wimpy chips."
...and some other comments from the same discussion thread

We are very pleased to welcome G.A. Sales Company, Inc. to our team!
G.A. Sales Company, Inc. is a technical sales and marketing organization that provides sales support and technical product training to distributors and end users. We strive to establish quality distribution networks for our principals while representing a wide array of products.
In the history of Destiny Tool we have not had a tool promotion. This is the first.
Here's how it started.
We've had such a wonderful following on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube of customers posting their success stories with our Viper End Mills in 6061, 7075, Brass, Bronze and Copper, making Aerospace Defense, Racing components and medical products that we wanted to thank them ALL for their support with a special offer...
But then we started talking about it here at the factory...
Then we talked to with several of our regional manager's and distributors and to some machine shops...
Frankly, it just didn't seem fair to only offer some special pricing just to our loyal followers,
"We should offer it to EVERYONE and EVERYONE should thank all of our loyal followers for making this promotion happen!"
All we ask is one thing from you. Say Thank You to the people that made this promotion happen by picking one of the following:
Give them a big thank you to each of them for making this special pricing promotion happen because we can't ever thank them enough for their continued loyalty and support!
the fine print:
