Ingersoll Cutting Tools grew out of the Ingersoll Milling Machine Company, founded by Winthrop Ingersoll in 1887. Ingersoll has long been one of the world’s leading suppliers of metal removal tooling. Since our first cutting tool patent in 1889, we have strived to provide the most innovative and productive metal removal solutions on the market.
We pioneered the development of indexable carbide end mills. We were the first to introduce the On-Edge insert configuration now known as IngersollMAX-line. We received the first patent for an indexable ball nose end mill and quickly followed with the first two effective ball nose end mill.
Today, Ingersoll Cutting Tools offers tooling for a wide range of metal removal applications including milling, turning, drilling and boring.
