In response to high customer demand, the CERATIZIT Group now offers from stock rods with two helical coolant holes, as sintered, in the new high-performance grade CTS24Z. This carbide grade is ideal for the machining of difficult materials like titanium or corrosion-resistant alloys for high-temperature applications.
Having virtually the same hardness as the proven CTS18D and CTS20D grades, CTS24Z features even higher toughness. In everyday production this provides maximum protection against breakage and ensures consistent performance of the tools. Hence the new submicron grade excels in aerospace applications which make exceptional demands on the tooling systems.
Greatly increased tool life
The titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V is frequently used in the aerospace industry and medical systems sector. Comparative tests when machining this material have shown that tool life can be greatly increased compared to conventional carbide grades using CTS24Z.
Extended stock range
Ever since EMO 2017 solid rods have been available from stock in grade CTS24Z, both ground and as sintered. The rods in the as sintered version with two helical coolant holes are a useful addition to the CTS24Z stock range of the CERATIZIT Group. As always, toolmaking companies can order the products from the company’s E-Techstore for delivery on the following work day by noon if the order is placed by 6.30 pm (CET).
