It is the first time the company will exhibit at EMO in Germany as Dormer Pramet, following the merger of round tools manufacturer Dormer Tools and indexable specialist Pramet Tools in 2014.
Although Dormer Pramet is a relatively new entity, their product brands can boast more than 150 years’ collective experience in specialized cutting tool manufacture. During this time, both have built a global reputation for high quality products that provide consistently high levels of performance.
The collective product range now represents one of the widest – if not the widest – portfolios in the market, covering from solid to indexable, high speed steel to solid carbide and general purpose to application specific tooling.
Stefan Steenstrup, Dormer Pramet President, will attend the event and said: “Even though we have an established global reputation, EMO 2017 will be a strong building block in the foundations of our future development and allow us to establish long-term growth both in Germany and in key markets around the world.”
Particular highlights being showcased during EMO include the new Force X family of carbide drills. Designed to support consistent performance and repeatability across diverse machines and conditions from 3xD to 8xD, all drills feature the unique Continuously Thinned Web (CTW) technology.
This provides a very strong web design, reducing thrust requirements during drilling which has the dual benefit of improving both performance and tool life.
In addition, the ‘flagship’ product of the indexable range – the Force AD universal 90° milling cutter – will also feature heavily at EMO. Supported by a wide program of inserts, all offer improved stability in a wide range of applications, even in unfavorable cutting conditions.
Combining solid performance with the ability to support ramping, helical interpolation and plunging operations in multiple materials, the Force AD assortment is – like the Force X carbide drills – an ideal choice for general engineering and sub-contract environments.
