We started to supply multi-axis CNC grinding machines for the production of end mills and drills in the 1980’s and many leading tool manufacturers and re-grinders as well as end-users of rotary cutting tools are customers of ours. The ever-changing world of continuous advances in cutting tool geometry continues to ensure that companies involved in this field need to have the most flexible machines available as competition increases.
The large range of CNC Tool Grinding machines from the market leading company Rollomatic caters for all aspects of CNC Tool Grinding from the cost-effective manufacture of blanks, through to the high precision 5 and 6 axis grinding of the cutting tool geometry. The Rollomatic LaserSmart 510 machine also features simultaneous 5-axis interpolation for the very high precision laser machining of ultra-hard materials such as PCD, CVD, MCD and natural diamond.
Gerber’s deburr and edge preparation machines are widely used by major cutting tool manufacturers for the edge preparation and deburring of various cutting tools especially inserts and cylindrical tools of all kinds.
Magnet Finishes tool polishing machines are also used for edge preparation but also to finely polish cutting tool flutes to ensure perfect chip evacuation during very high-speed machining.
Now GPA Innova with their revolutionary D-Lyte machines offer the world's first dry electropolishing process for cutting tools.
One of the main applications for Platit coating machines is the coating (usually TiN, TiCN, CrTin, etc) of cutting tools (end mills, form tools, and drills) and also inserts, saw blades, hobs and broaches. Here Platit leads the way in offering cost effective coating solutions that means that tool manufacturers can now easily and cost efficiently coat their own tools and cutters instead of relying upon expensive subcontract solutions.
Our range of machines is supplied to numerous companies all around the world and the leaders in industry use these to great affect.
We have many thousands of worldwide references but customers that we have supplied equipment to here in the UK include, amongst others:
