Stick blades are supplied in 3 different conditions:
In order to ensure maximum and stable performance of our stick blades, the raw material is supplied exclusively by qualified sintered carbide manufacturers. Our long-standing experience in the production of tools has led us to choose a carbide containing 10% micrograin cobalt, with low porosity and high purity.
All the grinding operations are executed with modern CNC machines, using diamond grinding wheels with high-pressure cutting fluid jets, ultrafine filtration and controlled temperature, in order to prevent the thermal drift of the machine and maintain very narrow tolerances, in addition to avoid dangerous overheating of the parts.
The roughing operations are carried out by using specific sharpening machines and with the use of robot loader. We make sure that the sharpening of each stick blade is accurate to a few micrometres by comparing it with a master stick blade approved by the customer.
Using automatic loaders as well, we can machine several batches of stick blades with high precision and very short delivery times.
Carbide stick blades are produced with very narrow tolerances and high precision squareness and flatness, in order to ensure optimum performance when they are mounted on blade holding discs.
