This leads to five key advantages:
- Cutting speeds
Due to high levels of hardness and wear-resistance, significantly higher cutting speeds up to 2000 m/min or 6,500 SFM can be achieved. This leads to a significant cycle time reduction and results in long-term cost savings.
- Tool life
Due to extremely resistant material characteristics, the use of PCD tools can increase tool life greatly which contributes in part cost reduction as well.
- Surface finish quality
The PCD characteristics also leads to considerably improved surface finish quality of the part as it generates a smooth and scratch-free surface finish.
- High repeatability
The PCD options are available for all current Schwanog systems with a repeatability of < 0.02 mm.
- Faster tool changeover
Often PCD is brazed onto the entire tool carrier. This leads to enormous and unnecessary downtimes during wear-related tool changeovers as the entire tool must be changed. Using the Schwanog system, PCD is brazed only onto the insertable tip leading to a substantial reduction in changeover times.
