Burs Designed to Improve Surface Finish in Aluminum



PFERD ALU/NF CUT burs for high stock removal.

PFERD ALU/NF CUT bur full lineup.

The comprehensive line of ALU/NF CUT carbide burs from PFERD are engineered to bring improved levels of machining performance particularly to aluminum applications. Aluminum has grown increasingly popular in industry because of its special properties, such as extreme durability, low weight, exceptional corrosion resistance and uncomplicated recycling. Processing the many different aluminum alloys, however, can be complex.

Depending on the alloy, the machinability properties can range from tough and gummy to brittle and hard. In addition, when milling aluminum, built-up edges can occur, which can cause the tool to clog up quickly.

Burs in the PFERD ALU/NF CUT range can effectively process material ranging from soft non-ferrous metals such as aluminum alloys, brass, copper or tin, to harder variants such as alloys with a high SiC content, titanium, titanium alloys and bronze.

The ALU/NF CUT family contains burs in a variety of shapes and dimensions, with shank diameters in 1/8" and 1/4" (3 to 6 mm), and bur diameters ranging from 1/8" to 5/8" (3 to 16 mm). "ALU/NF CUT burs are characterized by high stock removal, long tool life and deliver smooth milling performance," said a company spokesperson. For working on softer aluminum alloys, PFERD offers a version of ALU/NF CUT called HICOAT, which has an additional coating. "Due to superior anti-friction properties, this coating improves chip removal significantly, increases the bur's tool life and delivers improved surface finishes with greatly reduced loading," said the spokesperson.

"ALU/NF CUT burs with HICOAT are optimized for specific material groups such as aluminum of course but also steel, stainless steel (INOX), cast iron and plastic, achieving excellent stock removal characteristics and long tool life," said the spokesperson. More on PFERD tools as well as many useful recommendations for working on aluminum can be found in the PRAXIS brochure "PFERD Tools for Use on Aluminum," which is available on the PFERD website (www.pferdusa.com/info/PDF/PRAXIS_ALUMINUM.pdf).
