About Shape Master
Shape-Master Tool Company has at its disposal over 40 PCBN grades and greater than 20 PCD grades. With this wide variety, and knowledge of their individual strengths, we can choose the best grade to suit the abrasion resistance and toughness needs of your workpiece material and machining operations. If you're not being asked to consider multiple grades, it may be that your vendor has limited options available to them. We can further optimize your tool with the appropriate edge preparation, radius, rake angles, wipers, chipbreakers, and coatings through a thorough consideration of your application's severity, surface finish and dimensional tolerance requirements. Because of this customization, we won't bore you with endless tables of 'standard' products. If you need an indexable diamond or PCBN insert, Shape-Master can make it for you at a competetive price. Geometry capabilities include rounds, squares, diamonds (80°, 55° and 35°), trigons and triangles. We also manufacture grooving, threading, form tools, microbore, and square or round shank turning tools. PCD and PCBN tool styles include both negative and positive single-tipped, multi-tipped, full edge, and fulltop as well as solid PCBN inserts. And every tool we make receives our unsurpassed scrutiny with regard to edge integrity.
