Useful for moldmaking applications, Crystallume’s Demon line of cutting tools is designed for extended cuts in difficult materials. Long tool life reduces the need to switch tools midway through the application. According to the company, the tools generate very little heat, hold size well, cut parts within tolerance and reduce the need for polishing. They also feature a coating designed to improve  high-temperature stability for machining hardened steels.
