Series 650 Tech Information

Ultra-Tool’s Series 650 Polished Ground Carbide Cylinders feature the same world-class tungsten carbide substrate we use in all our finished cutting

tools. Ultra-Grain has an excellent combination of high hardness

& transverse rupture strength. Addition‑ally, although cemented carbides typically feature poor corrosion resistance, our Series 650 offers industry leading specifi­cations for this characteristic as well. These cylinders, like all Ultra-Tool solid carbide products, are Shrink-Fit Ready (SFR).

Only Ultra-Tool® offers a full range of cut styles for your specific application needs. Featuring our proprietary Dura-Cut and Fast-Mill, all styles are precision ground to the best quality standards. Truly a high-end product. Now available with At coating for Style #7 and TA coating for all seven other cuts.

Standard Cut is a generatpurpose style designed for

cast iron, steel, other ferrous materials.

It will achieve very high material removal rates and good workpiece finishes. The second most popular style after Dura-Cut.

Fine Cut improves finishes on hard­ened steel, stainless steel, and cast iron. Operator control is improved. The excellent finish, however, comes with reduced stock removal rates.

Coarse Cut is recommended for use on soft material such as

copper, brass, aluminum, plastics, and rubber, where chip loading is a problem, and the rapid stock removal rates of Fast-Millis not practical.

Dura-Cut allows for rapid stock removal in harder materials. The addition of left hand flutes reduces the pulling action, allowing better operator control. It reduces the size of the chips and can be used at slower than normal speeds.

Coarse-Dura Cut is for fast stock removal in soft materials, with improved operator comfort over Coarse Cut.  The addition of the left-hand Dura also reduces chip size.

Fine-Dura Cut is very effective in heat treated and tough alloy steels. The Dura addition reduces the size of the chips and offers excellent operator control and surface finish.

Fast-Mill is designed specifically for use on non-ferrous & non­metallic materials. Designed for rapid stock removal with minimum chip load­ing. The best selec­tion for rapid removal of aluminum.

Diamond Cut is very effective in heat treated and tough alloy steels, produc­ing extremely small, powder-like chips. It offers very good operator control and stock removal at the sacrifice of some finish and tool life characteristics.

Why TA and Al Coatings? Both of these superb SmoothCoat surface coatings are ideal for dry machining and will enhance tool life, lubricity, and part finish. OurTAison extremely well-rounded coating for a wide material hardness range, while Al is ideal for the materials Cut #7 is utilized on. Other coatings available per application.

Our newest technology can achieve incredible productivity increases in specific applications. Many of our new Series include SmoothEdge as a standard feature, while on others it can be added as a same day post treatment for a small charge.

The Edge Preparation Process

Our cutting edges are literally too sharp for certain materials. For our carbide inserts and now i ncreasi ngly for our solid carbide round tools, proper edge preparation can yield huge productivity improvements to “out of the box” tool application. Using a process we call Smooth EdgeO and performed on ma­chine tools developed in our own R&D lab, we’ve taken the mystery out of tool “break-in” and provided a consistency that can be counted on time and again. All five types of SmoothEdge will yield different benefits dependent upon application. SmoothEdge will make your tools sound and run smooth from the first cut and protect your tooling investment from unnecessary potential for chipping during initial tool paths.

SmoothEdge 1

A microblasting treatment using extremely fine aluminum oxide powder to smooth the carbide surface while generating a very light edge preparation. This feature comes standard with any SmoothCoat® coating.

Uses: Highly recommended for most milling and drilling applications.

SmoothEdge 2

A lapping treatment to create extreme lubricity & smoothness with minimal edge prep on uncoated tools.

Uses: Highly recommended for milling and drilling of aluminum and other non-ferrous applications using uncoated tools.

SmoothEdge 3

Combines microblasting and lapping for a light hone with extreme lubricity.

Uses: Highly recommended for milling and drilling applications of aluminum and other non-ferrous applications using coated tools.

SmoothEdge 4

Adds a proprietary hone to the blasting and lapping cycles for a medium edge prep with excellent lubricity.

Uses: Highly recommended for milling and drilling applications involving general steels, stainless, and cast iron.

SmoothEdge 5

Doubles the honing and lapping cycle for maximum edge strength; a robust edge preparation combined with excellent lubricity A% characteristics.

Uses: Highly recommended for milling and drilling applications involving stainless, high-temp alloys, and exotics.

With so manyvariables present in the machining process, it is essential to optimize every possible factor to achieve world -class efficiency. Your choice of a genuine Ultra-Tool® Solid Carbide product is an excellent first step in the process. Ultra-Tool® Solid Carbide products are high -performance toots thatwill perform best in a machining environment characterized by rigid fixturing and minimal spindle runout. Attention to proper speed and feed will eliminate vibration, chatter, and overheating as well as extending tool life. Generally speaking, the peripheral speed of solid carbide toots will vary with the hardness of the material being cut. The harder the material, the slower the speed. High speed and insufficient feed will cause work surface glazing and poor tool life. Chipping of cutting edges is an indication of chatter which can be caused by too high a speed, too light a cut, or improper support of the tool or workpiece. Handling is also very important; sharpened cutting edges should never be allowed to come into contact with any hard object (or another toot) in anon -machining environment as they wit[ chip easily. Keep your Ultra-Tool® products in their original protective packaging until ready for use.

The guidelines on the following pages are generalities designed to demonstrate the operating window within which you may experiencethe best results. The charts and information should provevaluable in longer toot life with greattyreduced operational costs. This information is for uncoated product: SmoothCoat products will have significantly higher speed and feed rates.
