Diamond Coating - Is It Worth The Cost?

Posted by Mark Donze on October 09, 2020

Here at Fullerton, we have various types of coatings, but our FC1 coated tools are one of the strongest and durable types of cutting tools. Our FC1 coating is a layer of diamond that is bonded to the carbide tool. This coating requires special carbide grades. Because of this, the only standard tooling this coating can be added to is our MATRX line of tooling. The MATRX line is available in a low wear grade of carbide that works well in abrasive materials without coating and much better with a layer of FC1 added. We can also manufacture specials out of the special carbide grade that will take the FC1 coating. This coating works great in Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP), Metal Matrix Composite (MMC), and other highly abrasive materials.

Tool Tip - Weldon Flats

Posted by Beth Bauer on July 13, 2020

Did you know that we have 2 different types of weldon flats?  It's true!  We have a Standard Weldon Flat and an Advanced Performance Weldon Flat.  The Advanced Performance Weldon Flat and the Standard Weldon Flat are essentially the same, but the length of the Weldon Flat to the cutting end of the tool is different.  The Advanced Performance Weldon Flat is measured from the flute washout to the flat.  This guarantees that the flute or flute washout will not be inside of the holder.  If the flute or flute washout is inside the tool holder, the chips can pack into the holder and can cause the tool to break.
