The line of ALU/NF Cut carbide burrs from Pferd Inc. brings new levels of machining performance particularly to aluminum applications, the company says. Aluminum has grown increasingly popular in the industry because of its special properties, such as extreme durability, low weight, exceptional corrosion resistance and uncomplicated recycling. Processing the many different aluminum alloys, however, can be complex.

Depending on the alloy, the machinability properties can range from tough and gummy to brittle and hard. In addition, when milling aluminum, built-up edges can occur, which can cause the tool to clog up quickly.

The burrs come in a variety of shapes and dimensions, with shank diameters in 1/8 and ¼” (3 to 6 mm), and bur diameters ranging from 1/8” to 5/8” (3 to 16 mm). These burs are characterized by high stock removal, long tool life and deliver smooth milling performance.
