The Pramet T8010 Resists Wear and Tear
The Pramet T8010 cutting grade is especially useful for continuous precision threading of steels, stainless steel, cast iron and super alloys.
Dormer Pramet has launched a wear-resistant grade for threading. The Pramet T8010 is ideal for continuous precision threading of steels, stainless steel, cast iron and super alloys. It extends the company’s assortment in this application area and supports the universal grade T8030.
The tool features plastic deformation resistance, which provides a stable cutting-edge, prolonging durability. The tool is said to enable higher cutting speeds, resulting in higher productivity. A gold finish on the insert enables a simple wear indicator, while a hard substrate and PVD coating has been optimized to alleviate interior residual stress to improve tool life, the company says.
Here's a look at one of the oldest and most efficient methods of screw machine production for parts that are long and slender, with close-diameter tolerances and finishes, or parts that require truly spherical radii.
Some primary factors are often overlooked when considering how to justify the implementation of a bar feeder for turning operations.
Sometimes a shop doesn’t do enough turning work to justify the purchase of a CNC lathe. But when it needs to produce precision turned parts, even if for a very small lot size, the shop needs a solution.
