|This study showed important gains in the
two fields of machining speeds and life time of the cutting
Significant examples are :
Along with these savings comes an excellent surface
due to the fine lamellar graphite flakes.
This gives a 23% gain for a surface dressing, and up
to 50% for boring, which can eliminate the need for
reaming thus increasing productivity.
These results are all confirmed by our customers who
are regular users of permanent mold parts.
They are all obtained on standard machining equipment,
with no need for specific investment, other than the
foundry die, which is very much lower than a sand casting
