Cutting Tools

Cutting ToolsToolquip & Allied stock a full range of cutting tools in both HSS and solid carbide including drills, taps and milling cutters such as slot drills, end mills and rippers. Our range of indexable insert drills offer the perfect solution for production drilling. We also stock a complete range of tool holders and boring bars together with the latest technology in carbide inserts. In the context of machining a cutting tool or cutter is any tool that is used to remove material from the workpiece by means of shear deformation. Cutting may be accomplished by single-point or multipoint tools. Single-point tools are used in turning, shaping, plaining and similar operations and remove material by means of one cutting edge. Milling and drilling tools are usually used as multipoint tools. Grinding tools are also multipoint tools. Each grain of abrasive functions as a microscopic single-point cutting edge although of high negative rake angle and shears a tiny chip.

Cutting ToolsCutting tools must be made of a material harder than the material which is to be cut and the tool must be able to withstand the heat generated in the metal-cutting process. Also the tool must have a specific geometry with clearance angles designed so that the cutting edge can contact the workpiece without the rest of the tool dragging on the workpiece surface. The angle of the cutting face is also important as is the flute width number of flutes or teeth and margin size. In order to have a long working life all of the above must be optimised plus the speeds and feeds at which the tool is run.
