Tensilbits

July 23, 2014

For optimum surface finish and contour duplication on your flat test specimens , you need carbide cutting tools engineered specifically for high speed machining with Tensilkut. Super cutting edge sharpness combined with other angles of cut and relief are essential to achieve the fine shavings required for non deformed specimen edges. We stock a wide variety of Tensilbits for many applications, including various metals, plastics, ceramics, fiberglass, and Kevlar.  Tensilbits are matched to the Tensilkut machine with which they will be used.

 

The picture below shows the 40-70 series half inch diameter Tensilbits, including the 40-71 TiN coated Tensilbit.
