The preparation of cutting edges is a crucial element of the manufacturing process for carbide inserts, mills, drills, taps, hobs and other solid tools. Being able to create accurate hones or radii has been proven to significantly improve tool life and reduce wear rates.
Vapormatt have been delivering wet blasting machines for edge preparation since the 1970’s and are able to offer customers ultimate control over the size and shape of their cutting edges, all within very tight tolerances.
The success of the wet blasting process for edge preparation comes in its ability to offer very homogenous finishing across the cutting edges. Vapormatt controls gives users the ability to consistently determine the size of the edge and also the type of k-factor that should be applied.
