Carbide End Mills Lengthen Tool Life, Reduce Wear
Amerimold 2017: RobbJack will highlight its DM/MDM end mills.
RobbJack will highlight its DM/MDM end mills, made from a carbide material and coating combination said to last 450 percent longer than comparable tools designed for hard-metal applications. Testing in D2 steel with a hardness of 58 HRC resulted in a smooth wear land of just 0.0025", the company says.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
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.
