Carbide Cutting Tool Brand Reintroduced
Arno Werkzeuge USA has reintroduced the H.B. Rouse brand of American-made carbide cutting tools and inserts.
Arno Werkzeuge USA has reintroduced the H.B. Rouse brand of carbide cutting tools and inserts. Formerly sold and marketed under the Arno-Rouse name, the company has reintroduced Rouse as a standalone product offering a broad range of carbide boring bars, tools and inserts for manual turning and milling operations.
The Little Hogger mills have standard ¾" Weldon shanks and use standard carbide inserts, useful on all milling machines. The carbide insert turning tools have triple-sided inserts for quick change turning operations. Triple-tip boring bars offer an improved triangular insert located within a precision-machined pocket to eliminate shifting under heavy cuts; the insert requires the simple removal of one screw for indexing. Boring bars feature carbide inserts that provide three cutting edges instead of only one (as is common with brazed-tip tooling).
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
