Fullerton Tool Co. Partners with Inovatools
Fullerton will now add Inovatools cutting tools to its product offering in North America.
Fullerton Tool Co. (Saginaw, Michigan), a manufacturer of solid carbide cutting tools, has announced a new strategic partnership with Inovatools, a tool manufacturer headquartered in Bavaria, Germany. Creating a strategic partnership with Inovatools is expected to enable Fullerton to expand its current product offering by incorporating a range of high-performance VHM drills from Inovatools. The partnership will also expand Fullerton’s available diamond-coated end mills and modular milling systems with products from Inovatools.
“We have the perfect partner in Inovatools,” says Justin Verburg, Fullerton’s national sales manager. “We both have a shared focus on the importance of quality, tool expertise, service, on-time delivery and reliability. I am confident that together we will be able to expand market growth in North America as well as help customers boost productivity, optimize quality and increase profits.”
Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
