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.
Advatages to Powder Metal
Powder Metal falls between Carbiden and Cobalt on the hardness scale. Particals can can be up to 78HRc but average hardness is 73HRc. Powder metal come in many different blends and is used when carbide is fracturing and Cobalt is wearing from heat. This is a great alternative to carbide as it can be ground to very sharp edge do to its small partical density. It can take high load cutting at close to carbide surface footage. It excells in high temp alloy machining as with its ability to have sharp edge and toughness in high tensile strengh aplications. It is used many times in aplications wear machine tool cant acheive recomended surface footage for carbide.
