Advantages of our “Customize it” Insert Tooling Program for CNC Machines

DSC_1036Advantages of our “Customize-it” system include:

  • No backer plates!  Tool body becomes a dedicated cutter and supports the insert knife, thus improving tool precision!
  • Constant cutting diameter with no re-adjustment do to dimension changes in the tooling
  • Manufactured in strict accordance with European Safety Standards
  • All tool bodies are precision balanced to G2.5 specifications
  • Cost-effective!

  • Inserts can be sharpened (face-ground)
  • Special carbide grades available depending on application
  • Cost sometimes less than the cost of a carbide-tipped equivalent tool

DSC_0545

  • Excellent tool life!
  • No lengthy lead time!

PCD Tools

DSC_0206

To get an optimal economic result when using tipped tools, it’s most important to have a look at all parameters. The manufactured quality is of utmost importance.

DSC_0129

Certain Criteria are to be considered when purchasing a Polycrystalline Diamond Tool.

  1. Exactly produced tool body, high corrosion protection
  2. Shank, borehole, cone and installation surface must be fine tuned and honed
  3. Rigid packaging for transport
  4. Dimension sheet should have exact CNC data
  5. Balancing quality grade

DSC_0208

An all-around tool does not exist. A dealer should provide expertise and give a very specific, exactly for your needs defined, offer. Only doing it this way guarantees a most economic result when using PCD tipped tools.

Cutters

The rating of cutters not only depends on superficial quality characteristics but also on the suitable design for the cutter which is very decisive for the respective application. Tools that are economically priced at first sight, can be rather expensive in the application, as they often don’t provide the expected machining quality or they are too detailed or inaccurate in handling.

  1. Round shape tooling reduces the free running noise.  
  2. Balance-borings are visible quality characteristics
  3. Sharp edges produce a finish-surface without grinding
  4. With the correct coating, the performance time can be at least doubled
  5. The thickness of the cutting edge considerably specifies the number of re-grindings.

DSC_0141

Always pay attention to form, shape and edge of the cutting tool. Through the use of round shape tools, one can reduce the noise level. Selecting the proper cutting material, and/or coating material will almost always lead to an economically improved tool.

A Tool as an Asset

DSC_0218The main difference between a quality saw and a less than perfect saw lies not in the outward appearance but rather in what’s below the surface. And with the ever increasing amount of different saw blades, the choices are aplenty and become more challenging.

Top Quality tools offer a high degree of technical sophistication. There are some important details that differentiate the better tools from those of lesser quality.

The quality of the materials, the technology, the workmanship and the support provided by the tool manufacturer are the factors which eventually determine whether the user will be able to perform high quality cuts with a saw blade and also how long the blade will last.

DSC_0219

Sales figures for low-cost producers show that purchase decisions are often price-driven. Other factors, such as product quality and safety, are often merely an afterthought or only come in as a secondary consideration.

Those who make purchasing decisions based on price alone though, generally wind up paying more in the end. When one considers that the money spent on tools is only a small percentage of the total tool cost but the tool has a decisive influence on the quality of the workpiece, a high quality tool should be the right choice.
