The negative hollow grinding transfers the metal removal process to the complete face. In the case of small axial depths of cut it is therefore possible to achieve very high advance rates without putting too much stress on the cutting edges.

Significant increase in advance rate by extending the chip width while retaining the chip thickness.

Advance speed

Before coating, the tools are treated on the cutting edge in order to minimise breakouts.

Which competitors are to be tackled? All suppliers of tools for the high advance speed machining of steels, especially Hitachi, OSG and Mitsubishi as well as the European competitors PWZ and Fette. In what areas should care be exercised? Fraisa mould-making tools are at least as good if not better than those of the competition. Re-sharpening, ToolService / ReTool

Is it possible to maintain the nominal sizes and tolerances of the tools after re -sharpening? If not, what deviations must the customer expect?
The geometry of XFeed tools can be re-sharpened. Thanks to the straight flutes, the results achieved are excellent. The radius tolerances are not critical, however, the user must be prepared to accept a reduction (min. >0.2mm) in nominal diameter. The smallest diameter which can be resharpened is 8 and possibly also 6mm.

How often can tools be re-sharpened?


The re-sharpening frequency depends on the diameter and wear. Once or twice should be possible however. Test results Test results will be published through the ToolSchool in the Fraisa Forum. Please also report your findings in the Fraisa Forum! Where should questions about our products be addressed?
