Carbide endmill eliminates polishing for hardened steel

TNP_Sandvik_ac.gifA new GC1610 cemented carbide used on Sandvik PluraTech endmills simplifies the finishing process and is said to increase productivity by 30% to 50%. This carbide endmill is coated with a wear-resistant titanium aluminum nitride. The coating provides sharp edges on the endmills, which result in fewer tool changes, a good surface finish, and optimum chip removal. When milling abrasive, chromium-rich tool steel, Sandvik reports that GC1610 outlasted previous solid carbide grades by four or five to one. The PluraTech endmills are available in ball-nose, toroid, and square-end multiflute designs.
