One tool may be used for an array of inserts with widths from 0.039" to 0.157". In addition, the Al-Tec IC908 grade may be used on a variety of workpiece materials.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
