Rainford Precision work with a number of high profile tool suppliers from Europe and Japan and specialise in machining and drilling tough and hard materials with a wide variety of endmill and drill tool geometries.
We can offer unique, and market leading tooling technologies such as our Toglon range of drill tools for producing holes in hard steel from 40 to 75 Hrc with a size range from 0.1 up to 12.0 mm diameter, with some diameters having 20D and 30D hole depth capability.
The surface finish achieved by drilling is superb and tolerances to H7 can be held up to 6 mm diameter. With this range our slogan is “eliminate EDM drilling”
We also stock drills from 0.1 to 2.0 mm diameter in 0.01 mm increments capable of drilling up to 50 Hrc, available on 3 mm shanks with 150° drill point angle.
Rainford are the UK’s micro machining specialists and can supply endmills from 0.01 mm diameter right up to 20 mm. With short, regular flute or long neck tools for deep pocket / rib milling up to 70 Hrc we have lots of solutions to your machining problems.
We are also able to offer a wide selection of diamond coated endmills for machining graphite with long neck tools in all popular forms being available.
To complement our tools for hard steel we are unique in being able to supply endmills, drills and threadmills to machine tungsten carbide (originally the preserve of grinding and EDM, but no more!) These tools are also suitable for fired ceramic machining.
Our most recent products are drills and endmills for machining composite materials with the drill range starting at 0.8 mm and endmills at 0.5 mm diameter.
Our solutions do not stop at endmills and drills, we can also offer taps for hard steel up to 63Hrc and threadmills together with special form tools to your design.
