ITC to show next generation coatings

At Sign & Digital UK, Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) will be introducing a raft of new products and services that will further underline the company’s benchmark position in the industry.

On Stand G40, the Tamworth-based cutting tool expert will introduce its knife tool re-grinding service alongside its already comprehensive range of blades for digital cutting tables. Making its world premiere at the exhibition will be the new IRIDIS coated line of tools that deliver unprecedented tool life and surface finish performance on aluminium and aluminium composite materials (ACM).

The new IRIDIS coating technology has been developed and tested by ITC and the results have proven extremely encouraging, with ITC’s Sally Hunt reporting: “We have been trialling it at our Tamworth headquarters in our test facility, as well as conducting industrial trials with customers and the results reveal that when using on aluminium and ACM materials, it is significantly improving tool life, performance and consistency. In trials with customers, the new tools are improving tool life from 30 to 50 percent. Additionally, the already impressive surface finishes from our tools has been further improved by the new coating technology.”

The IRIDIS coating technology has now been added to ITC’s most popular tooling ranges, such as the 180 A-Series and the STA series of standard and balanced routing tools.

With the exponential rise of the digital cutting table, ITC also offers a full-line-up of knife blade solutions and is a leading supplier of oscillating blades, flat and round shank drag knife blades and rotation blades in a vast array of geometries and sizes. Now, it is ramping up its support network and further expanding its re-grinding service for knife blade product lines too. In addition, it can supply a complete line of special tools that can all be manufactured in the UK, together with an extensive range of complementary products, such as sacrificial sheets, lubricants, anti-slip matting, router collets, CNC tool holders and more.

As always at Sign & Digital UK, ITC engineers will be on hand to discuss customers’ needs and provide advice, recommendations, solutions and support for all of their routing and digital cutting table tooling challenges.
