UGIMA®-X: the third generation of the special steel
15 July 2019
The better a material can be machined, the more cost-effective the associated process chains are for manufacturing operations. For this reason, Ugitech constantly develops its stainless and easy-to-machine bar steels further. The latest result is UGIMA®-X – the third generation of the special steel. With UGIMA®-X, the company in the SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Group offers customers a long-term advantage in the market, provided among other things by longer service lives of the tools being used.
UGIMA®-X enables extremely high cutting speeds alongside low tool wear. In figures: the new steel grade extends tool service lives by 25 % to 50 %.
The third UGIMA® generation thus fulfills the requirements of the latest CNC machinery with speeds up to and above 10,000 revolutions a minute. Ugitech customers thus benefit from extended tool life, improved cutting fragmentation and added reliability in production planning.
Ugitech offers UGIMA®-X in the three versions of 4404, 4305 and 4307. The three materials all have higher machinability than their predecessors with otherwise identical properties.
