  • Form Cutters (Rifle Barrel Machining)
  • Component Milling
  • Drilling Operations

Out of every tooling option that is available, the carbide cutters are certainly favored among many manufacturers. The carbide cutting tool contains a carbide material that is going to provide an improved cutting performance, while effectively machining with unbeatable results. The carbide material offers enhanced tooling capabilities, which is, essentially, due to the tool's physical strength and increased resistance to wear, pressure and heat.
