High quality tools are made from high quality materials, and Alliance CNC uses only the highest quality carbide for all of our cutting tools. All materials are rigorously inspected prior to manufacturing.
The first step of our manufacturing process utilizes a combination of center-less and peel-grinding techniques to finish grind all diameters to their specified size. Our OD (Outer Diameter) Department is capable of holding diameters within a 5 micron tolerance.
Once the tool’s cutting diameters are ground, our 5-axis department flutes and relieves all of the tool’s cutting features. In this step of our manufacturing process, intricate tool geometries are ground and held to print specifications.
ALCOAT (IN-HOUSE COATING DEPT.)
To enhance tool performance, most of our tooling is completed with an application specific coating from our coating department. Having this capability in house allows us to monitor the coating quality and provide faster turnaround for our customers.
