STF Precision PCD Rotary Tooling
STF Precision now offers a complete line of PCD & CBN rotary
tools, including endmills, reamers, drills and countersinks.
What makes STF’s groove tools superior to other groovers?
The advantages of PCD over carbide are well documented in non-ferrous applications: lower cost per hole, longer tool life, reduced down time for tool changes and faster speeds and cycle times. After a significant investment in state of the art rotary equipment, STF is now producing round tools at tolerances within a micron.
Why do rotary diamond tools take 12 weeks and longer to manufacture?
Many rotary tools are made overseas and imported to the US, adding weeks to the delivery process. We make all our tools in beautiful Asheville, NC. We cannot understand how any US manufacturer could quote a 12 week delivery with a straight face. Our standard round tool lead time from design to delivery is six weeks.
Will STF design my tooling based on a part print or sample?
We currently run more than five in-house CAD systems and employ the most current solid modeling software for tooling designs and prints. We will gladly provide electronic and hard copy prints for all tools produced and are happy to work with engineers to design and model an optimal tooling solution based on part prints or samples.
