The machining of aluminium wheels requires high cutting speeds and extremely hard cutting materials. Robust tools are needed to withstand the enormous centrifugal forces that arise at high speeds.
We have decades of knowledge and experience in this segment and have consistently expanded and optimised our range of tools and indexable inserts. We are now full-service providers: We are able to offer the optimal tool for every process involved in the production of aluminium wheels – from machining the internal and external profiles through to the valve and screw hole bores. Today, our tools are used to machine around 50 percent of all aluminium wheels found on cars, motorbikes, HGVs and even aeroplanes.
