Pferd Inc. has introduced Cast Cut, a new line of high-performance carbide burs specially designed for work on cast iron. They are characterized by an extremely high stock removal rate, coupled with a smooth milling action that reduces vibration and noise.
Cast Cut achieves stock removal rates up to 100 percent higher than conventional double cut burs thanks to its tooth geometry, which is a plus for automotive customers, given the industry’s drive to boost productivity and save time. Other key markets include foundry, welding and general industry.
Cast Cut is optimized for coarse stock removal on all types of black, grey and white cast iron. In addition, with a cutting speed in the 1,500 - 2,500 sfpm range (rotational speed of 12,000 - 20,000 rpm), it has an aggressive cutting action that results in large chips and good chip removal, which, combined with its high metal removal rate produces optimum results in the shortest possible time. In keeping with PFERD’s commitment to creating overall value for the customer, the new CAST CUT bur is energy-efficient and reduces waste. It is available in five standard SCTI shapes with a shank diameter of one-quarter inch.
Pferd’s focus on operator health and safety with its Pferdergonomics program continues with Cast Cut as its reduced vibration and lower noise contribute to a fatigue-free, high efficiency working environment.
