TC Engineering has utilised the ITC Cyber Series of carbide tooling from ITC to improve production times and reduce burrs from its parts.

TC developed a complete lighting system that involved researching, developing and sourcing UK manufacturers for the lenses, LEDs, PCBs and numerous other components.

This left ITC to produce the aluminium brackets, light casing and the clamping devices.

TC implemented a 3mm diameter three-flute cutter from ITC for the machining of a silver backing plate that needed a hole and counterbore near the edge of the part.

The new light weighs 63g, has a power of 1200 lumens and can project a strong and focused beam over 30m.

An example of the productivity gain with ITC tooling has been noted on a stainless-steel part that needed a 6mm keyway with H6 tolerance machined through the centre of the part.

TC Engineering previously used a 4mm roughing tool at a feed rate of 35mm/min and then finished the parts with a 6mm diameter finishing tool at a feed rate of 40mm/min to cut four parts in one setup.

Following the suggestion of ITC, the subcontractor introduced a carbide three-flute 6mm finishing cutter, which runs at 220mm/min and cuts the keyway in one pass.
