A new issue of Dormer's global newsletter - D.World - is now available. In this latest edition, customers discuss how they each overcame machining challenges. Among these, Ortosintese, a Brazilian manufacturer of me
Among these, Ortosintese, a Brazilian manufacturer of medical implants, needed to reduce drilling time involved in the manufacture of an orthopaedic prosthesis. The high tensile strength of the workpiece caused excessive tool wear, meaning the cutting data had to be reduced significantly. Dormer recommended its R567 CDXInox drill - a tool designed specifically for machining stainless steels and exotic alloys. The results speak for themselves: feed rate tripled, time per hole fell by 70% and tool life increased by more than ten-times, resulting in annual tool consumption savings of 68%.
