How Do I Know What Tool To Use For My Application?

A lot of factors play a role in deciding what tooling to use for an application. Factors such as cost, lead time, material, machine and so much more. When deciding what tooling is best, it is important to look at the entire process to figure out what kind of value will each tool provides. Burnishing and high-performance reaming are two types of tooling that can drastically change your machining results if they are correctly implemented.

Burnishing tools provide a way to improve surface finish, along with eliminating costly secondary operations such as grinding and hand polishing. When making the decision to use a burnishing tool, there are some things to consider. The first is the material you are trying to burnish. Some materials can be burnished better than others. Surface preparation is another key component of the burnishing process. Since roller burnishing does not remove any material, the surface must be properly prepared to ensure the best results possible. It is possible for a part surface finish to be too good from the start to be burnished. It is important to leave the proper amount of stock on the surface to be burnished. The engineering team at Monaghan Tooling Group are burnishing experts and can help you decide if burnishing is the right tool for your application.
