WhizCut Carbide Grades


WhizCut Carbide Inserts

WhizCut inserts and tooling are specially developed to suit the cutting conditions in CNC Swiss automatics. The WhizCut precision carbide inserts are made of carbide which results in maximum strength when looking at hardness and wear resistance. All cutting edges are fully ground and exceptionally sharp. This, together with the latest types of coating and suitable cutting geometries, gives WhizCut inserts an excellent tool life. For best performance and tool life it is recommended to follow the recommended cutting data for swiss.

Grades of Carbide

WhizCut inserts are made of an extra fine grain carbide with hardness over 1750 Hv. The WhizCut carbide is an extremely hard grade with a high tensile strength and even grain size. Compared to conventional carbides this carbide is very wear resistant which drastically extends tool life.

WhizCut round tools are made of a sub-micron grain carbide with a hardness over 1610 Hv and a medium cobalt content. The grain size is remarkably even, resulting in a supreme tensile strength.
