ITC’s new coated tools cover all substrates
The 180-10-A Series of single flute routers from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has now been extended with the arrival of a Vitreo coated router for machining Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) and an Iridis coated variant for the machining of aluminium.

The cutting tool experts at ITC have trialled and tested numerous tool geometries and coatings to provide the sign industry with what it claims, is the most productive and highest performing cutting tool, the 180-10-A Series single flute router with the new Vitreo coating. A solid carbide tool with an upward spiral geometry that incorporates a 30° helix with a reinforced 6mm shank, it is made from ultra wear-resistant micro-grain carbide, and is ideal for reducing the number of collet changes necessary and for prolonging life when machining aluminium composite material (ACM). Furthermore, the combination of an efficient tool geometry with an extremely hard-wearing coating provides excellent surface finishes that significantly reduce secondary finishing operations.

The Vitreo coated 180-10-A Series is available with 2, 3 and 4mm diameters with a 6mm reinforced shank, an overall length of 50mm and the length of cut that is 7mm on the 2mm diameter tool and 10mm on the 3 and 4mm variants. This geometry further enhances the rigidity and strength of the tool, which subsequently results in the end-user making fewer collet changes.

For machining aluminium, the new 180-10-A Series is available with the same tool dimensions and geometry but with an Iridis coating. Unlike the Vitreo coating for ACM, the Iridis coating has been specifically developed for the machining of aluminium at high speeds. The coating technology guarantees exceptional surface finishes that are complemented by the tool geometry that minimises burrs. The combination of the Iridis coating and the tool geometry gives this new arrival longevity and performance.
