LMT-Fette is pleased to announce the introduction of
a new diamond film coating, ALUTEC
LC600A. This new grade features a tungsten carbide substrate
engineered for toughness
and wear resistance, and a PCD diamond film hard coating
up to 10,000 Hardness Vickers.
The new product will revolutionize rough and finish turning
With an excellent balance of carbide substrate toughness,
and highly wear resistant diamond
coating, LC600A is excellent for turning of cast aluminum
alloys. LC600A combined
with our BAL (Boehlerit Aluminum) geometry provides optimum
chip control and tool life in
aluminum alloys with either low or high silicon content.
The new PCD diamond-coating technology
of LC600A makes it possible to run at slower sfm ranges
from 650 to extremely high
ranges over 9,800, providing the wide range of sfm needed
when machining automotive
products such as cast aluminum wheels.
As stated above, LC600A’s primary application use
is in machining of cast aluminum automotive
products. Its performance is unmatched by the PCD coating
technology. The nano
crystalline and microcrystalline layering process in
LC600A inserts provides an excellent
hard coat surface needed for tool life and improved finishes.
Boehlerit offers the BAL
chip breaker geometry in ISO style inserts more cutting
edges than conventional brazed
tipped cutting edge inserts.
Combining the toughness of tungsten carbide and the wear
resistance of PCD, LMT-Fette’s
LC600A insert grade is a new generation of diamond film
coating produced to compete
with conventional brazed PCD tipped inserts for machining
of aluminum alloys. This new
product offers five to ten times the tool life achieved
by conventional tungsten carbide
inserts. LMT-Fette offers its exclusive BAL geometry
designed specifically for short and long
chipping aluminum, materials providing optimum chip control
compared to brazed PCD flat
top style non-chip breaker inserts.
