Micro engraving cutters
- July 21, 2016
BIG Kaiser has introduced a series of micro engraving cutters developed and built by its partner Sphinx. The solid carbide engraving cutters’ sharp, positive cutting geometry promotes burr-free surface finishes and smooth transitions.
The engravers come standard with a Ø 3 mm shank and are available in a variety of angles (30°/40°/50°/60°/90°) and in two possible point geometries—flat or radius tipped. The radius cutters range from .04mm-.10 mm (.0016 -.0039 in.), and the flats range from 02mm-.15 mm (.0008-.0059 in.).
The micro engraver are appropriate for work in most materials ranging from alloyed and unalloyed steels to thermosetting plastics, and even titanium. The company says they are an excellent addition to BIG KAISER’s existing micro cutting tool lineup of pilot/spotting, high performance, drill reamers, deep-hole and end mills from Sphinx.
