An increasingly popular product in the Rainford portfolio comes in the form of solid carbide slitting saws with widths starting from 0.1 mm wide which can be manufactured in increments as small as 0.01 mm (the standard increments are 0.05 mm). The ranges of saws cover many diameters, bore sizes and importantly the number of teeth enabling a wide variety of materials to be milled.
Tooth forms can be straight, helical or staggered tooth, cutting on the outside diameter and / or the side teeth. Single angle or double angle forms are also available along with full form radius (concave and convex) cutters from 0.2 mm to 6 mm.
All the saws and cutters are manufactured from ultra-fine grain carbide and can be supplied uncoated or coated to suit the application.
A regularly asked question is “Can you also supply precision arbours” and of course the answer is yes, (starting from small arbours to fit in to ER8 collet systems) with bore sizes covered from 3.0 mm to 16 mm diameter.
