Custom Tool Spotlight: Custom Form Tool
Welcome to another Custom Tool Spotlight, a series that takes GWS cutting tools and gives them mini biographies. Today, we’re talking about a custom form tool.
What’s It For?
This tool is specifically made for cutting titanium jet engine parts at a southern based turbine blade manufacturer.
What’s Cool About It?
This tool is able to achieve the job of three tools in just one single tool. A proprietary GWS PVD nano-coating is applied at the end, with specific application for Ti-6Al4V.
Eliminates multiple tools and complex toolpath programs. Linear toolpath is all that is needed to mill the shape within a .001″ form tolerance. In addition to the minimization of complexity to setup and programming, cycle times were vastly improved and scrap rates for a very expensive part were greatly reduced.
