Thanks to continuous product development, we have been able to create a new generation of grinding tools designed specifically for the requirements of HSS tool manufacturers, who are currently experiencing something of a renaissance.
Modern HSS tools, such as drills, milling cutters, reamers and chamfering tools as well as special tools of all kinds require perfect surfaces. Above all, however, they need consistently accurate geometries in the flutes in order to safely remove large volumes of chips and coolant and avoid so-called chip jam.
A shaped abrasive and a newly developed hybrid grain in combination with a new resin bond have significantly improved the cutting performance of the new tools, resulting in higher feed rates and a reduced risk of burning. A new type of grain bond also produces a highly abrasive grinding wheel surface with good stock removal ability, which leaves an excellent surface pattern on the work piece. Building on the excellent experiences with the MIRA ICE product line launched a few years ago, the same principles have now also been applied to the bond system of the new STARTEC ICE products.
