In metal working, whether you are in a small machine shop or a large mill, the quality of the tools you use certainly impacts how quickly and expertly you can finish the job. The milling ends and precision cutting tools you use have to be well made and of the right materials to allow you to finish the job, meeting the tolerances, framework and timetable specified.
Buying the right CAT 40 tool holders is a must. There are many companies out there selling CAT 40 tool holders at various prices, with differing delivery times and inventory. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between the products one company offers from another, so you need to do your homework before making an investment in CAT 40 tool holders.
If your firm will use a ball end mill on the CAT 40 tool holders you are looking to purchase, you will find a wide variety of mills and CAT 40 tool holders. The same goes with CAT 40 tool holders on aluminum cutters used for routine or high specification work. In fact, the array of choices can be bewildering, especially when time is of the essence. Make sure the CAt 40 tool holders you seek are right for your application. The newer HSK tool holders, with their inner hollow tapered shank, may fit your needs better if you have a specific high speed machining requirement.
Because of the number of vendors available, do a little research on some companies you would consider doing business with. Look for a website, for instance, that looks professional and easy to use, one that seems to be speaking directly to you as a user, one that indicates some direct experience with CAT 40 tool holders.
A website that is all flash and no substance may indicate a lot of distance between who is putting the material on the website and the people who actually use the tools themselves. Look for a website that is thorough, reasonably informative, and easy to navigate, giving you the information you need in the detail you desire.
If you find a brand and a supplier, now is the time to do a little legwork on the phone. Contact people you know in the business and see what they say about the quality and durability of the CAT 40 tool holders you want to order, and the firm that is selling them.
