HMT have developed a generation of ULTRA cutting tools for use in the most challenging applications.
The specialist ULTRA coating is proven to significantly increase tool life, making ULTRA products the perfect solution in situations requiring high performance durability, prolonged use or machining extremely hard materials
They are produced from premium grade materials and coated using a range of state of the art, high-temperature surface coatings.
CarbideMax ULTRA Benefits

- Use with Biocut Blue & SpeedLube Lubricants
- Ideal for use on HARDOX - CREUSABRO - ABRO - RAEX - STRENX - BISALLOY
Please Note: The extreme hardness and resistance of wear plate makes machining it extremely challenging. Good results are dependent on the right setup - including high torque/slow speed, geared Magnet Drills, like the VersaDrive Series, and ample lubrication - BioCut Blue cutting fluid when broaching or Speedlube Aerosol spray when countersinking.
Using an incorrect or poorly maintained Magnet drill with unstable drilling operation, poor magnet hold, excessive pressure or inadequate lubrication is likely to result in rapid tool failure.
Even with high tech tooling, successfully machining Wear plates is challenging with little or no margin for error. It not only requires the correct setup but also experienced operators with the time necessary to proceed with caution.
