End face milling ensues either through hobbing or face milling. Commensurately, milling tools employed for treating flat or parallel surfaces are used, i.e.

- plain milling cutters and end face mills
- end mill cutters
- cylindrical cutters are gang cutters, combined
- milling heads (cutter heads)
