Somma’s solid carbide T-type cut-off blades are made of C2 grade carbide. These blades are ready for use with cut-off angles sharpened on both ends so that tools can be used on the front or rear slide and for either right- or left-hand operations. Somma solid carbide blades offer long wear, less galling, a better finish, and can be used at higher speeds than standard high speed steel blades. Solid carbide blades have more rigidity and up to 10 times the resharpenable tool life of carbide tipped tools, the company says.

  • Swiss-Type Machines: More Than Just A Lathe

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.

  • Thread Whirling Basics

    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.

  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
