Steel Machining – Standard Engraving Tool
The standard engraving tool is ground specifically for engraving steel. The relief angle on the back of the tool is minimal offering better strength and stability. The uncoated carbide cutter can be re-sharpened using a proper cutter grinder. This service is not offer by Datron.
For precision, high-quality engraving, using engraving tools are recommended. The ‘V’ shape design allows you to machine very finite detail while still maintaining a good degree of strength in the tool. The cutting edges have a draft angle depending on the cutter which in most cases is desired for the end product. These solid micro-grain carbide tools are available in various cutting angles, tip sizes, tool lengths and shank diameters.
DATRON’s unique CNC cutting tools are made with a proprietary process:
- We use high quality micro-grain carbide to provide superior tool life and long-term savings
- A multi-stage grinding process delivers extra sharp, polished edges for burr-free machining, reducing or eliminating the need to hand-finish parts
- Patented tool geometries that decrease cycle times, improve finishes and boost productivity
