Rapide Range
Increased stock removal and a 30% increase in tool life!

An end-user for a leading European manufacturer in the marine industry was concerned that the carbide burs they had previously used were not offering them optimum performance and tool life, which resulted in increased cost of consumables as well as extending the time that operators spent on each component.

The customer approached ATA to develop a solution which balanced the needs of their top criteria, namely:

  1. High stock removal rates
  2. Excellent quality surface finish
  3. Extended tool life

Our trusted long-term local partner was able to conduct tests on-site with the end-user. The more negative tooth geometry of the D-Max Cut was suggested to offer High Stock Removal and a good Surface Finish. These were very well received but we still needed to offer them a solution to give the longest possible tool life.

To resolve this, we recommended using the Rapide coated range to extend the tool life. The combination of these features offered the end-user the solution they were looking for, helping them reduce the time that operators spent on each component.

By working in tandem with ATA and our local distributor, the customer achieved significant increases in stock removal in addition to a 30% increase in tool life.
