Are your cutting tools competitive?


Whitepaper on cutting tools

Through the ever-increasing customer demands on tolerances and performance, testing and constant measuring in research and production become inevitable for the manufacturers. This white paper shows how optical 3D surface and roughness measurement can help to identify the ideal tool and machining parameters of cutting tools to guarantee customer satisfaction.

Table of Contents

  • Challenges for manufacturers: Surface finish, machining parameters, importance of measuring
