Carbide tipped CNC machine tools for de-burring and boring applications.

Solid Carbide burr tools bonded to highspeed steel shanks of various lengths are stocked or made to order by SFS Carbide Tool Company.

Standard Cut Types of Cuts: Standard STANDARD CUT is a general purpose tool designed for cast iron, copper, brass and other ferrous materials. It will give good material removal and good work piece finishes.
Fine Cut Types of Cuts: Fine cut bur tool FINE CUT improves finishes on hardened steel, stainless steel and cast iron. CNC Operator control is improved.
Coarse Cut Types of Cuts: Carbide bur Coarse COARSE CUT is recommended for use on soft material such as copper, brass, aluminum, plastics, and rubber, where chip loading is a problem.
Chip Breaker Chip Breaker cut carbide tool tip CHIP BREAKER CUT will reduce sliver size and improve operator control at a slightly reduced surface finish.
Standard Double-cut bur tool from SFS STANDARD DOUBLE-CUT allows for rapid stock removal and better operator control. Chip size is reduced and tool speed can be slower than normal speeds.
Hardened Carbide bur too in Coarse Double-cut COARSE DOUBLE-CUT is for fast stock removal in soft materials. Allows good operator control and produces small chips.
Carbide tipped bur tool in Fine Double-cut FINE DOUBLE-CUT is very effective on heat treated and tough alloy steels. Chip size is reduced and it offers good operator control.
Aluminum Cut Aluminum cut de-bur tool ALUMINUM CUT is for use on non-ferrous and non-metallic materials. It is designed for rapid stock removal with minimum chip loading.
Diamond Cut Diamond cut SFS Carbide de-burring CNC tool sets DIAMOND CUT is very effective on heat treated and tough alloy steels. It produces very small chips and good operator control. Surface finish and tool life is reduced.

Tungsten carbide cutting and boring tools are smaller now than ever before, and seem to be getting smaller every year. To meet this challenge, SFS Carbide Send SFS your carbide bur specifications for a custom tool cutting tools are fabricated exclusively from the advanced tungsten carbide composites developed and supplied by domestic and foreign suppliers. Ultra-fine grain cemented ceramics are the result of an extensive development program aimed at optimizing the very best of cemented carbide technology to achieve an exceptional combination of hardness, toughness, and strength for demanding cutting jobs.

These extraordinary properties have been achieved by producing tungsten carbide with a grain size of only 0.4 micron. We select grades of solid carbide blanks to accommodate the application at hand from precision dental drills to industrial reamers and engine cylinder ball cutters. Generally speaking, the need for reliable small hole drilling and the accompanying demand for extended tool life has necessitated the use of the finest grades of carbide currently available. The bulk of our tools are fabricated from 6 to 10% cobalt blanks, which are recommended for solid carbide rotary tool applications.  Call SFS engineers to discuss any of your CNC machining tool requirements.

Factoid: CNC controllers are devices that control machines and processes. They range in capability from simple point-to-point linear control to highly complex algorithms that involve multiple axes of control. CNC controllers can be used to control various types of machine shop equipment.  These include horizontal mills, vertical mills, lathes, programable drill presses, turning centers, metal grinders.  The number of axes controlled by CNC controllers can range anywhere from one to five, with some CNC controllers configured to control greater than six axes. All need cutting tools made for specific applications. Made to order from blue print drawings, or from submitted samples.
