BIG KAISER Precision Tooling has added Sphinx’s Nirox high-performance drill to its cutting tool lineup. Available in diameters from 0.30-3.00 mm, the company recommends using the Nirox at low cutting speeds in unstable environments. The Nirox’s geometry has a degressive helix angle equal to 30 degrees at the point and is designed for accurate and precise hole location up to 9 times the diameter.

A TiAlSiN-based coating enhances chip and coolant evacuation in difficult-to-machine and adhesive materials, such as titanium, Inconel, stainless steel, hardened steel and CoCr alloys.


  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.

  • Successful Application Of Ceramic Inserts

    Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
