Cutting Tools Guhring gives UK trade show debut to new range of cutting tools
At Mach 2022, Guhring demonstrated a complete range of products that included threading, turning, drilling and milling tools — many of which received their UK exhibition premiere at the show. The performance of the tools was demonstrated ‘live’ on a Grob 5-axis machining centre.
With an extensive milling portfolio, Guhring gave a Mach show debut to the new RF100 Sharp Series of high-performance end mills that were put through their paces on the Grob machine. Designed to address the issue of machining soft, tough and high-alloyed materials that create an issue with swarf clearance, the new RF100 Sharp Series is the manufacturer’s sharpest solid carbide milling tool to date. Alongside the Sharp was the Diver Series of end mills that the company recently extended for micromachining with the new RF100 Micro Diver. Another crowd-pleaser was the RF100 5-Speed and RF100 7-Speed solid carbide end mills. Developed for the machining tough materials, the RF100 5-Speed and RF100 7-Speed solid carbide end mills are part of the highly dynamic Guhring Trochoidal Cutting (GTC) series.
As a leading manufacturer in the drilling and reaming arena, the exhibitor had its holemaking ranges performing on the Grob machining centre at Mach. With many of its drilling lines undertaking ‘live cutting’ demonstrations, it was the RT 100T solid carbide spiral flute deep-hole drills that captured the imagination of engineers at the show. The engineers were also busy at Mach discussing the scope of special tooling solutions that can be designed, developed, manufactured and trialled at the company’s facility in Birmingham.
Commenting upon the exhibition, Guhring UK Managing Director, Chris Weston said: “It was the first time for Guhring to have a machining centre on the Mach stand to demonstrate products, and it worked extremely well. We had a crowd around the machine all week, paying close attention to the jaw-dropping performance of our tools. We are also delighted to announce that our cooperation with Grob at Mach was just the first step in a long-term partnership that has now seen Guhring UK take the impressive 5-axis machine that straddled both stands at Mach straight to the Guhring technical centre in Birmingham. Arriving at Guhring UK immediately after the show, the machine will cement our relationship and enable us to provide comprehensive demonstrations of our product lines on an extremely capable 5-axis machining centre. It will also serve as a facility for Grob to invite its customers to undertake machining trials.”
