Italy, Mestre – Products from Osawa and Nikko Tools

The Italian company Sorma, a leading player in the designing and distribution of high performance cutting tools, is announcing a series of significant new product introductions at the forthcoming EMO 2017 exhibition in Hannover (Hall 5, Stand A84).

The new products from the Osawa and Nikko Tools ranges are designed to provide customers with the performances, flexibility and versatility that are required today to win by increasing productivity.

Drilling and milling product families

The most significant introduction is the new Osawa catalogue 2018 featuring all solid drilling and milling product families including the new products showcased during the exhibition.
For the new drilling solutions, key focus at EMO will be on the HPU drills, a new generation of carbide coated drills, able to deliver high performance both in case of mass production and in case of small batches and different work piece materials.

The HF EVOlution product family becomes the most comprehensive range of variable helix.

The excellent chip evacuation

The special “Sgeometry and wider chip pockets allow an excellent chip evacuation; the straight edge profile and the 45° corner chamfer edge allow increased toughness even with higher feed rate and with very abrasive work-piece materials, resulting in a longer tool life.

The drills’ special design allows also easier re-grinding. HPU drills are available with diameter from 3 mm to 20 mm, with or without internal coolant and in 3xD and 5xD versions and deliver outstanding performances on steel, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminium, and superalloys.

HF EVOlution for milling

In milling, the HF EVOlution product family becomes the most comprehensive range of variable helix and unequal pitch endmills for universal use available in the market, thanks to the addition of new lines including extra short corner radius, long endmills for trochoidal milling smooth cut for reduced cutting forces and the enhancement of the ALU range for machining of aluminum.
