Features and Benefits
UNCOATED is as it states no coating. This tool still has many benefits over a coated tool. All coating put heat in the tool causing them to become more brittle. Long reach small diameter tools many times perform better uncoated as they dont snap as easily. Applications were coatings may leave partials in the part. J polished tools coatings tend not to adhere to showing very little benefit in tool life. Micro tooling where surface footage is never going to be achieved. Cost is not much different today but there is still a small up charge for coating.
When to use HSS
High Speed Steel is the toughest of all cutting tool substrates. It works well in matirials under 35HRc as it has a hardness fo 62HRC. It is great for manual machines, low rididity aplications, extremely tough matirials and low SFM machining.
