Diamond-Coated Cutters for Hard Milling
Amerimold 2017: Crystallume will showcase its latest tool lines, including the Demon series for hard milling.
Crystallume will showcase its latest tool lines, including the Demon series for hard milling, which features an advanced coating for increased high-temperature stability while machining hardened steels. The Stealth line of end mills, also on display, is said to have the sharpest cutting edge available in a diamond-coated tool, making them well-suited for machining graphite.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
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.
