| BlackHawk Team

BlackHawk is proud to partner with some of the best suppliers in the world. Recently, one of our premier partners – ARCH Cutting Tools – launched a full line of all-new, all-American cutting tool solutions under its KEO brand.  ARCH Cutting Tools is a recognized world leader in performance solid round cutting tools. It specializes in tools for medical, aerospace and defense and industrial markets. 

The new line - Patriot High Performance – promises to further advance precision machining in America. Originally optimized to tackle difficult-to-machine applications such as in Titanium and pre-hardened steels, the Patriot High Performance End Mill excels in a wide array of exotic, alloyed and ferrous part materials.

With the demands of today’s manufacturing industry in mind, the Patriot High Performance End Mill has shown to provide extended tool life - in some applications by as much as 20 percent and is designed to thrive in high efficiency milling (HEM) applications, resulting in higher metal removal rates and increased productivity that provides a measurable return-on-investment for customers.

Features and Benefits:  

  • Ranging from 0.125”- 1.00” diameters
  • Can be used in roughing, profiling, slotting, and finishing applications
  • Increased tool life — high performance coating that offers high wear resistance complimented by toughness and stability at high temperatures
  • Significantly reduces chatter and improve surface finish
  • Increase material removal rates by increased cutting depth and feed rates

“The Patriot High Performance solid carbide end mill project is a long-anticipated labor of love for ARCH Cutting Tools. KEO is a brand that’s been around for more than 70 years that is universally recognized within the industrial manufacturing and metalworking space,” said Marcus Ralston, Director of Product Management, Standards – ARCH Cutting Tools. “KEO has long established itself as a reliable source of quality product, great customer service and engineering expertise. In today’s production-based machining climate, machinists need that everyday tool they can count on to be in stock and get them through every job.”

Ralston also noted that jobs are getting more challenging and part material increasingly more challenging to machine. “After years of development, the Patriot Mill has been successfully applied in a multitude of modern practical applications,” he added. “KEO is a brand with a rapidly growing portfolio of high-performance tools. I’d put this tool up against any other competitive milling tool on the market today, without hesitation.”
