Vapormatt have developed some of the highest levels of expertise in the world when it comes to the edge honing, cleaning and polishing of cutting tools after grinding. Continued innovation has allowed us to develop wet blasting systems that can incorporate up to seven processes, allowing manufacturers to bring several stages into one system.
Our applications are very well suited to the manufacturers of tungsten carbide and high speed steel inserts, round shank tools, hobs, taps and milling cutters. With some of the highest capacity systems on the globe available for this application, Vapormatt are able to give you the capacity to process up to 30,000 pieces per day in a single unit.
The application of a radius to the critical cutting edges of your tools will greatly improve the tool life and consequently increase the value of each component. Having patented several pump designs, process control and jigging methods, Vapormatt can provide controllable wet blast processes which consistently and accurately achieve edge radii within +/- 10um of your specification.
As well as offering very consistent edge radii the wet blasting process also offers further benefits. With systems utilising up to 32 gun heads during processing, all tools subject to the Vapormatt wet blast process respond extremely well to any downstream PVD or CVD coatings that may be applied. With a Vapormatt finish, any coatings applied will be significantly more durable when compared with alternative processes.
