Milling Titanium Ti6Al-4V with 8 cutting edges per insert!

Up to 8 cutting edges per insert. That’s helical milling at the lowest possible cost-per-edge. HARVI Ultra 8X helical milling cutters are designed to deliver the highest metal removal rates (MRR), especially in high-temperature alloys (Titanium).

March 2022 US Cutting Tool Orders Up 17.2% From February 2022

March 2022 U.S. cutting tool consumption totaled $196.4 million, according to the U.S. Cutting Tool Institute (USCTI) and AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology. This total, as reported by companies participating in the Cutting Tool Market Report collaboration, was up 17.2% from February’s $167.6 million and up 10.6% when compared with the $177.6 million reported for March 2021. With a year-to-date total of $523.9 million, 2022 is up 11% when compared to the same time period in 2021.

These numbers and all data in this report are based on the totals reported by the companies participating in the CTMR program. The totals here represent the majority of the U.S. market for cutting tools.

“The total sales volume for March 2022 is the highest total since October of 2019; this is a welcome volume,” commented Brad Lawton, chairman of the AMT Cutting Tool Product Group. “However, we must ask: What part of this volume is the result of inflation? At the recent MFG Meeting presented by AMT, the presence of inflation in the economy was clear but not expected to develop into a recession. The cutting tool industry will positively evaluate the future and plan accordingly for a soft landing.”

Alan Richter, editor-at-large of Cutting Tool Engineering, also commented on inflation, saying, “While challenges to the metal cutting sector remain, it's encouraging to see that the dollar total for U.S. cutting tool orders in March 2022 is at a level not seen since prior to the pandemic, in October 2019. Some of that is the result of inflation, as the cost of carbide and other tool materials increase along with the price to produce and transport tools, but cutting tool consumption looks likely to continue to rise throughout the year as manufacturers continue to ship more durable goods. I'm looking forward to experiencing a lot of positive energy at IMTS in September.”
