CVD Diamond-Tipped Tool System Offers Machining of Fully Sintered Carbides
Horn USA Inc. presents DDHM, the company’s CVD diamond-tipped tool system for cost-effective machining of bores and countersinks in carbides and sintered ceramics.
Horn USA Inc. presents DDHM, the company’s CVD diamond-tipped tool system for cost-effective machining of bores and countersinks in carbides and sintered ceramics with a hardness of up to 3,000 HV. With the launch of this system, the company expands its range of products for machining fully sintered carbides. Because the machining process can be implemented on conventional milling or turning centers, these tools do away with costly and lengthy grinding and eroding processes.
The DDHM system enables users to machine punches or dies from carbide material. The tool system also offers significant advantages in other contexts, including medical technology and aerospace technology sectors, the automotive industry and in areas of punching, forging and forming technology. The diamond tools enable shorter throughput times, high surface quality, lower overall costs, greater flexibility within the production process and a longer tool life for finished products.
The drills can be used for drilling into solid material down to a maximum depth of ten times the diameter. The CVD-D-tipped drilling tools have a two-edged design and are available in diameters ranging from 2 to 10 mm (.079 to .394-inch). All versions feature an internal coolant supply.
A look at some of the factors influencing the success of your machining center investment.
While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
Correct alignment lock selection will reduce maintenance costs, molding downtime and increase part quality over the mold’s entire life.
