In Sanmac® materials, machinability has been improved without jeopardizing properties such as corrosion resistance and mechanical strength. The non-metallic inclusions in Sanmac® steels are of great significance to the improved machinability. In addition to sulphides, Sanmac® steels contain oxide inclusions that improve chip breaking and reduce tool wear.
- Increased cutting speeds and feed rates, resulting in better machine utilization and reduced fixed cost per item produced
- Less tool wear, resulting in more items cut per insert edge
- Reduction of set-up times, facilitating long series production with the same cutting data
