ITC set to launch new ClearCut range of tooling

ITC Cutter in operation.Following extensive research and development into new cutting tools, leading manufacturer of cutting tool solutions for the sign and aerospace industry, ITC Tooling is set to announce the launch of its new improved ClearCut range of tooling.

The ITC range of ClearCut tooling has established its position in the marketplace and has been well received at both the Sign & Digital UK Exhibition and the Print Ireland show since its launch in 2008. The new ClearCut Solid carbide two flute, square end, straight shank cutter is a centre cutting tool manufactured from micro grain carbide to extremely tight tolerances with a polished flute geometry.

One of the Clearcut range of toolingDespite the huge demand the ClearCut range has noted since its launch in 2008, ITC is not a company that rests on its laurels. With this in mind, ITC has worked tirelessly to improve the Clearcut range and the result is a new ClearCut Series due for launch this autumn. Behind the scenes ITC has experimented with various flute dimensions and tool geometries at its Tamworth facility with extensive tests conducted on the company’s 5-axis Matsuura machining centre.

Trials with a number of prestigious sign manufacturers have proven extremely positive with results delivering exceptional surface finishes in acrylic materials, removing the need for secondary operations and finish polishing. With such benefits there is little doubt that the new ClearCut range will emulate the success of its predecessor.

For customers interested in the current ClearCut range, the series has a polished geometry that gives an exceptional finish on Perspex and acrylic materials and in most cases eliminates the need for flame polishing components after cutting. To obtain the best results from the ClearCut series, ITC advises customers to use the range on a high powered and well maintained machine that can cut anti-clockwise. As well as remarkable results on acrylic, the range offers exceptional surface finish on Foamex and similar materials.
