INTEGI, represented in Australia by Romheld , has released a range of cut and pressure knurling tools. Pressure knurling is done by cold forming the material whereas cut knurling actually removes material like a milling tool.
Integi has a range of knurls to accommodate all requirements including cross hatch (diamond), straight and angled forms. They come with a variety of coating options and can be manufactured in conical, convex and concave styles. Knurling tool holders are offered for both conventional and CNC machines in single, double and multi-wheel versions for pressure knurling. Variants include units with revolving heads that enable three different knurl patterns to be accommodated and pivoting/reversible head units which allow for both left and right-hand use.
The MFCNC series of tools are used for cut knurling and are comprised of two wheels plus a scale to set the correct position of the knurls for a given workpiece diameter. They can produce low-cost diamond knurling patterns at 30º, 45º and 60º on diameters up to 250mm. A product catalogue provides all the details necessary to select the best knurl and tool for the job, including an overview of knurling technology and recommended speeds and feeds.
