Q: Why did you put so much effort into creating a tool dedicated to aluminum?
Aluminum is one of the most widely used metals in aerospace manufacturing because of its light weight and high strength. Aircraft components ranging from bulkheads and wing ribs to fuselage panels and seat tracks are all commonly made of aluminum. So we wanted to equip our machine shop customers with a high-performance tool designed specifically to improve their productivity on aluminum aerospace applications. The KOR5 DA delivers, with a 66% higher feed rate than most typical three flute tools and exceptional Metal Removal Rates. During rigorous tool tests, the KOR 5 in ½ inch diameter reached 180 cubic inches per minute!
