The annual Made in the Midlands manufacturing exhibition will be returning to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 21 June, promising to be the largest show in its nine year history. Among those supporting the event will be cutting tool manufacturer Tungaloy. On Stand D3, Tungaloy will be showcasing a host of cutting tool innovations, as well as demonstrating how its ‘Dr Carbide’ app can prescribe the right tool for any machining requirement.
Being the first Japanese company to develop cemented carbide, Tungaloy is known for its ISO turning grades. This range has been continually extended with the recent addition of the company’s latest AH8005, AH8015 and T9215 grades.
The AH8005 and AH8015 grades have been designed for machining super alloys such as Inconel 909, 718 and 625, as well as Hastelloy C-4 and TiAl6V4 titanium, to list but as few. To support its claim, full test reports are available on request.
Alongside the super-alloy grades will be the T9215. Designed for machining ISO P15 steel, this grade was only released in March. When tested against other grades, Tungaloy says that T9215 can more than double tool life on materials such as S55C, SCM440, S32750 and SNCM430. Free-of-charge samples of all of these grades, as well as many others, will be available on the stand, so visitors can witness the benefits for themselves.
With over 300 exhibitors and 2500 decision makers expected at the event, the floor space for the 2018 show is treble its previous size.
