Rainford Precision has now been announced as the new UK and Ireland distribution partners for BSQ Tech GmbH. For engineers looking to improve their productivity drastically when machining aluminium, aluminium alloys, copper brass, plastics, PEEK and all other non-ferrous metals, the SwissCeraMill series from BSQ Tech GmbH is a real treat.

The addition of the SwissCeraMill series from BSQ Tech GmbH to the Rainford portfolio can increase tool life from 5 to 25 times and improve productivity by 400% compared to conventional carbide cutting tools. To achieve such jaw-dropping gains, a high-speed machine is recommended, but improvements can be achieved with standard machines – accelerating performance for manufacturers in the automotive, aerospace, medical, tool and mould and general subcontract sectors.

Manufactured from high-tech ceramic zirconium oxide with a micro-grain structure of 0.3 microns, the SwissCeraMill end mills are available in square end, corner radius and ball nose designations as well as special-purpose tools to suit the diverse needs of industry. The square-end tools are available in diameters from 1 to 20mm diameter and with the chamfer tools, the 45° chamfer on the smallest tools starts at 0.05mm ranging up to 0.5mm on the 20mm diameter tools whilst corner radius tools introduce radii dimensions from 0.5 to 2mm. For profiling applications and challenging forms, the ball nosed series is available from 4 to 20mm diameter. For manufacturers machining gold, platinum and other precious metals, the Gold Series is also available in a variety of dimensions.
