The railways keep the country moving and regular maintenance & repair work is necessary to keep them in excellent condition.
As a Network Rail Approved supplier, HMT has developed a range of broach cutters specifically designed to speed up and reduce the costs of drilling rail track material.
Specially machined cutting geometries offer superior performance against HSS cutters and other similar alternatives with in excess of 100 holes in UIC 60 Rail achievable.
CarbideMax Rail Cutters are suitable for Cembre, Rotabroach and other similar rail track drilling machines.
The HMT CarbideMax range uses Premium Grade Sandvik Tungsten Carbide teeth, one of the hardest materials available for use in cutting tools. This means cutters are capable of drilling through the toughest steels whilst maintaining their strength & cutting surface for up to 10x longer than traditional HSS cutters.
The elaborate geometry of CarbideMax broach cutters means the teeth of the cutter do all the work. This reduces strain on the tool body and means that a strong but thin flexible alloy can be used for its construction.
Thinner walls means CarbideMax tools need to remove less material from the work piece resulting in a faster cut and quieter, easier drilling.
Greater job site efficiencies and fewer stops as fewer tools are reordered and replaced.
