2- HTS Carbide DRILLS:
These are produced in four different types:
1- Solid tungstan carbide drills coated or uncoated, from 3 to 20 mm in diameter.
2- Drills with indexable inserts cutting edge, from 16 to 82 mm.
3- Drills with changeable head and indexable cutting edge, from 20 to 45 mm.
4- Drills with changeable cartridge, head and indexable inserts cutting edge, pilot drill
with adjustable length of drilling, from 45 to 170 mm.
SFS's "Gold Standard" line of drill bits, reamers and routers
feature the latest technology in titanium nitride coating. With numerous applications in
industry where difficult and abrasive materials are routinely machined. The TiN coating
has proven to not only to increase the quality of the end product but to save time as
well. The hardness of the Titanium Nitride coating is approximately 80 Rc. This
coating is excellent for machining soft gummy steels, mild steels, and aluminum. TiN
coating is also excellent for flexible materials. Due to its 'slippery' texture the cutter
cuts more freely and the chips glide easily across the flat and out of the way. This
coating has the best lubricity of any coating which is coupled with its high hardness.
This allows it to work on a wide variety of materials and to out perform uncoated tools
that may be burning, galling, producing a poor surface finish, or that simply have a short

The Gold Standard coating can be placed on all of the engravers, cutters,
or endmills manufactured by Crown Cutters. Crown's solid carbide "Gold Standard"
cutters mean more and better engraving, fewer cutter changes, reduced heat build-up,
higher speeds and feeds, improved part finish, reduced cutter deflection, and 3-5 times
normal edge life. As well as this, coated cutters can be resharpened and recoated and
still outlast uncoated cutters by 2-3 times. Contact us for current pricing. Specify TiN
coating when placing your order or ask about our other selections of tool finishes.
End Mills are fluted tools designed specifically for cut-out applications.
They are highly sought after because of their enhanced cutting capabilities over the
average products available to the engraving industry. Unlike a parallel cutter which is a
half round cutter with one small straight cutting edge, the end mills cut with flutes. A
flute is simply a cutting edge but the difference is in the design. Flutes are longer and,
for most engraving cut-out applications, spiral slowly for the entire flute length. This
spiral works similar to a drill by pulling the chips up and out of the cutting path. By
pulling the chips out of the way, the cutter can then cut more freely reducing heat
buildup and increasing cycle times. Loot to SFS for..
