With over 50 years of design and manufacturing experience, only Fischer Special Tooling has the expertise to create the most cost-effective face-cutting trepan form tool solution. Our precision ground cutting tools are manufactured for your specific facing operation. Using solid carbide, brazed carbide, or high speed steel, Fischer Special Tooling can produce any custom shape regardless of the complexity of the tooling geometry. Our engineering staff will work with you to design trepanning tools, face groove tools, and hollow mills that offer the highest precision possible with the appropriate clearance to ensure a smooth operation.
Typical machining processes utilizing our trepan form tools include:
- tooling to cut O-ring groove for Parker face seal
- intricate geometries on the ends of high-volume precision-turned automotive components
- end-face grooves with smooth surfaces required for metal-to-metal seals
- deep recess hollow mill applications where off-the-shelf face grooving inserts do not perform
Staggered flute forms, unequal index fluting, and radial and axial rake are available and can be applied to your custom form end-cutting tooling as needed. Our unique grinding process allows for both internal and external diameter clearance while maintaining the most repeatable form possible from flute to flute. This provides you with aggressive rates of material removal, superior surface finish and form accuracy on your final product.
When you put our experience to work for you, Fischer Special Tooling will create a custom form tool solution that provides you with the lowest machining process cost per part possible. We will design and manufacture the most repeatable tooling components and the highest precision ground form geometries possible using our exclusive Swiss profile grinders. Our goal is to partner with you to get your process running as efficiently as possible.
