Flute Polishing

Our Flute Polishing service was developed to improve performance of conventionally PVD coated tools. The tools can be polished pre or post coat.

During the pre-polish, rough surfaces and micro-fractures are polished to chip free condition at high magnification. We can also apply a variety of edge preparations along the cutting edge during this process. The size and shape of the "edge prep" is determined based upon your application details.

After coating the tools can be polished for a second time to remove droplets and stress formed during the PVD process. We have been able to improve tool performance from 25%-75% utilizing both pre & post polish processes.
