Harmonics delivers Cost Savings and Improved OEE. It dramatically improves premature abrasive wear with a minimum of a 300% increase in tool life.
Our process goes all the way through the material.
The tool is a good candidate for our process if it has to be sharpened or re-ground. It works with both perishable and non-perishable tools.
Surgical Scalpel Structure
Nylon Pucks cut with a treated Shearing Blade
• Hardened Tool Steel
Examples of what it works on:
• Cutting insert
• Send mills
• Drill bits
• Broaching (bars, profile, or section)
• Slitting knives
• CBN grinding wheels
• Resbond grinding wheel(stone)
• Hob cutters
• Saw blades
• Sonic welding horns
Carbide Cutting Insert Comparison
Figures A and B are surface roughness plots of the area near the cutting edges of two H.S.S. drills. Prior to making the measurement both drills had been super polished to obtain the minimum roughness. The drill represented in plot B had been treated prior to polishing and attained a significantly better finish than did the non-treated drill. We attribute this outcome to our harmonics process that dramatically reduces surface roughness.
Note: Green line – treated broach bars
