Fast Cutting, Long Lasting Portable Band Saw Blade

The Morse 811 portable saw blade is the fastest cutting, longest, and portable blade in the market today.
The Morse 811 portable band saw blade from M. K. Morse combines an aggressive tooth with a variable tooth pattern to reduce vibration and increase cutting speed.

Unitized Punch Tooling Applications

The new unitized tooling system combines standard Multicyl MC series, the HZ frame, and the HZ unit from Unipunch.
Multicyl combines the standard Multicyl MC series, the HZ frame, and the HZ unit from Unipunch to punch angles, tube edges, and hard to reach extrusions.

Pipe Saw Cuts Ductile Iron Pipe

The MILLHOG® APS-438 Air Powered Saw and steel WrapTrack® System, which produces square cuts with 1/8 in accuracy, is available from 6 in to 60 in diameter.
The MILLHOG APS-438 Air Powered Saw and steel WrapTrack System from ESCO is a rigid pipe cutting system suited for cutting stainless steels, Inconel®, and other highly alloyed pipe without leaving a heat affected zone.

Hobs for Spur Gears, Helical Gears and Splines

The hob is registered in accordance with DIN3968 class B, but generates a gear quality extremely close to what can be expected from a class A hob. Insert changing is quick and easy, and yet features modern wedge-clamping technology for positional repeatability and the groundbreaking iLock interface for high precision and stability.
The CoroMill 176 range of full profile hobs from Sandvik Cormant is ideal for roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations on both hobbing machines and multi-task machines/five-axis machining centers.

Exchangeable-Tip Drill Now Available for Stainless Steel

This design optimizes grade and geometry for steel to ensure hole quality for the intermediate hole-tolerance area of IT9-IT10. The drill is available in diameter range10.00 mm through 26.65 mm (0.394 in through 1.049 in) and lengths up to 8X drill diameter as standard. Each drill body has a unique interface size with matching tips to achieve hole tolerances of H9 through H10.
The CoroDrill 870 from Sandvik Cormant makes holes more efficiently and closer to required specifications required so they are better equipped for subsequent operations.

Shoulder Mill for Cutting Steel, Stainless Steel, Cast Iron

The A17-mm insert allows for an exceptional material removal by using a serrated design of the insert for overhang large applications.
The PWS Shoulder Milling Cutting Series from Sumitomo is an excellent roughing tool that takes heavy depths of cut and punishment in various materials and still provides excellent tool life.
