Mikron Tool Offers Cutting Tools in Fractional Inch Dimensions
Now offers swiss cutting tools with diameters in fractional inches, starting from 1/64" up to 1/4".
Mikron Tool expands product line to include tools with diameters measured in fractional inches.
The Swiss cutting tool manufacturer Mikron Tool has expanded its product line to include tools with diameters measured in fractional inches, starting from 1/64" up to 1/4", depending on the product line. The expansion is designed to align Mikron’s cutting tools with high-tech industries in the U.S. and worldwide, including aerospace, where many measuring elements are expressed in imperial measuring units.
Mikron Tool has introduced a fractional inches diameter range for a large assortment of its drilling and milling cutter families. The selection is focused on workpiece materials such as stainless steel, titanium and super alloys. The range includes micro drills and micro mills of 0.016" and extends up to a diameter of 0.250".
Mikron Tool offers a tool range that will satisfy most every need in a multitude of projects and every tool has specific characteristics. For example, the deep hole drill CrazyDrill Cool SST-Inox has internal cooling channels that enable efficient chip evacuation to ensure high-performance machining even at a drilling depth of 40xD. The plunge mill CrazyMill P&S is another example with its special cutting geometry that enables perpendicular plunging with subsequent milling into solid material to create perfect slots and pockets in minimal space. This range starts from a diameter of 0.039" (1 mm) or 1/16" for fractional sizes.
Production of micro threads can be challenging, but using the most suitable tools for a given application can simplify the task.
The rapidly increasing demand for high-value threaded parts with exceptionally high length-to-diameter ratios has created a lot of interest in thread whirling technology among American shops and manufacturers.
