Sumitomo Electric Carbide says its SumiMill Goalmill milling cutter accurately finishes cast iron.

Turning of Steels and Stainless Steels
The Super FF (Fine and Flat) coating on the company’s new insert grades, AC820P and AC830P, is wear resistant and reduces the possibility of chip adhesion because of its smoothness. 

New Generation Of Steel Turning Grades
Sumitomo’s next generation of P20 and P30 coated carbide turning grades include the AC820P, which is designed for general-purpose turning of steels and stainless steels and the AC830P, which is designed for interrupted cuts and roughing. The Super FF coating provides wear and breakage resistance while increasing tool life.

Grades For General-Purpose, Interrupted Turning
The wear-resistant Super FF coating (Fine and Flat) on Sumitomo’s AC820P and AC830P grades is said to reduce the possibility of chip adhesion due to its smoothness. Combined with carbide substrates, the series is said to offer higher speed capabilities and greater resistance to breakage than conventional carbide grades when machining steels and stainless steels.

Coating For Dry Machining Of Al Alloys
Engineers from Sumitomo Electric Industries have developed a diamond-like carbon coating (DLC) for the dry machining of aluminum alloys and nonferrous applications. Previously, in the first stages of harsh-environment cutting, coatings would peel and lose their beneficial properties.

See The Tool's Value Instead Of Its Cost
This company is embracing high-performance tooling on its turning centers. The "sticker shock" is no reason not to do this. In one case, though, the shop found a way to limit the cost of the tool and increase productivity at the same time.
