Two flute end mills are versatile cutting tools used extensively in milling operations for their efficiency and finish quality. They are particularly well-suited for machining slots, pockets, and for plunge cutting due to their design. The primary advantage of two flute end mills lies in their ability to efficiently evacuate chips from the cutting area, making them ideal for machining softer, non-ferrous materials such as aluminum, plastic, and wood. This chip clearance capability allows for higher feed rates and faster cutting speeds, enhancing productivity.

A cutting tool is considered general purpose when it can perform a wide range of cutting operations on different types of materials.  General purpose cutting tools typically have a moderate amount of cutting edge strength, which allows them to cut most materials at an acceptable speed without dulling quickly.  They also have a moderate rake angle, which contributes to their versatility by reducing the chances of vibration during the cutting process.  In summary, a general purpose carbide cutting tool is versatile enough to handle a range of cutting applications and materials while still maintaining a decent level of cutting edge strength and rake angle.
