Carbide tip annular cutters

Share This Post

Hougen Manufacturing, inventor of the Rotabroach annular cutter, has expanded its line of Copperhead Carbide Tip annular cutters, with more sizes and depths. 

The Copperhead cutters are now available in diameters up to two inches and in depth of cuts from two, three and four inches. The cutters provide greater wear resistance and more holes-per-tool productivity in high Brinnell hardness alloys or abrasive materials like cast iron, claims the company. Their special tooth geometry and full length flutes help maintain superior chip flow over other styles of carbide tipped cutters.

Copperhead Cutters are available with two different styles of shanks. The standard two flat shank fits most magnetic drills and can be used with drill presses and machining centres with appropriate spindle adapters. The newer Copperhead Fusion cutters have Fusion Groove Innovation shanks for use in magnetic drills having tool-less arbors. This reduces setup times and further boosts Copperhead’s already superior productivity. The cutters also have two, 90 degree set screw flats to fit magnetic drills with standard arbors providing up to 2 times the tool life of tool-less systems. Copperhead Cutters’  toughness and durability is enhanced by a special surface treatment which gives them their distinctive colour, hence the “Copperhead” designation. Cutters are available individually or the most popular sizes are available in kits.
