At ASI, we strive to develop new innovative cutting tool systems, as well as improve upon existing machine cells in an effort to reduce production costs, increase productivity and improve overall workpiece quality. We offer the following products and design them according to specific customer requirements based on machine parameters, workpiece tolerances and cycle time constraints.

  • Brazed PCD Tools
  • Aerospace Tools
  • Automotive Tools
  • Fine-Boring Tools
  • Boring Bars
  • Face Milling
  • Inserts
  • Micro Tools
  • Piloted Reamers
  • And More! 

Brazed PCD Tools: Multi-flute PCD tools are designed to run at maximum RPM and increased feed rates. We select from seven different grades of PCD to offer outstanding tool life and improved surface finish. One pass machining is not only possible but represents the majority of applications. Complete tooling assembles are generally used to control T.I.R., however hydraulic and shrink fit connections have proven to be very successful. All non-ferrous applications should be considered including aluminum cast, composites and glass filled plastics.

Aerospace Tools: Carbide, Cobalt (M42) & HSS tools designed for optimum performance in all areas of aircraft manufacturing. Advanced drilling, piloted reamers, countersink (micro-stop), spotface & counterbore applications.

Fine-Boring Tools: Designed with indexable inserts, advanced material guide pads and radial/axial adjustment at the spindle. PCD, CBN, Cermet, Ceramic and Carbide inserts are provided to best suit your application. Guide pads are ground to stringent tolerances to prevent deflection and dampen vibration. A T.I.R. ring is provided to indicate tooling assembles within .00005”. Fine boring tools are well suited for applications with tight tolerances, fine surface finish requirements and interrupted cuts.

Boring Bars: Advanced natural frequency controlled technology. Designed with extended Length to Diameter ratios for difficult applications. Benefits include, reduced weight, enhanced workpiece surface finish and improved tool life.

Face Milling: Anodized aluminum PCD face mills are designed to run at maximum speeds and feeds and produce improved flatness. Wiper blade geometry is used for deburring applications and adjustable PCD blades are provided with configured geometry. Standard balancing to 15,000 RPM and high velocity balancing available upon request.

Inserts: Carbide inserts with configured lead geometry are provided for bore finishing operations. ISO standards are used for rough boring, turning and milling applications. PCD and CBN inserts are available for all ISO standards and special geometry determined by your workpiece. We have developed proprietary edge preparations for interrupted cuts that will increase tool life and improve surface finish. Monocrystalline inserts have been developed for super micro finish applications e.g. aluminum cast or forged rims, laser mirrors and contact lens machining.
