Proudly Supplying the Best Cutting Tools for 45 Years!

One of the major reasons Scientific Cutting Tools is a leader in the cutting tool industry is the company's unwavering commitment to offer exceptional value at affordable prices. SCT recognizes that a tool must perform well every time in order to be of value to the customers it serves. That is why SCT only uses Super-Compressed Sub-Micron Carbide (SCSMC) material in the process of making each cutting tool. Even though this high-quality of carbide (SCSMC) is more expensive than inferior grades of carbide, SCT tools cost less to purchase. This surprising fact has been accomplished through years of capital reinvestment in the state-of-the-art grinding equipment used by SCT. The cost savings in producing cutting tools by SCT is passed along to its customers. SCT's CNC tool and cutter grinders also provide quality and consistency that are unmatched in the industry. Additionally, all thread mills and porting tools are ground between centers in order to establish absolute concentricity. Finally, all tools are offered with a TiN coating from stock and are inspected under high magnification guidelines.
