Benefits of cut knurling include maximum precision and surface quality, knurling of thin-walled components without deformation and time savings due to faster cutting speed and feed rate. Additional advantages are machining of virtually all materials (including gray cast iron and plastic), zero or only minimal alternation of the workpiece diameter and minimal surface compaction.
In form knurling, machining of the workpiece by cold forming compresses the surface of the workpiece. Knurling is possible up to a workpiece shoulder, at any position of the workpiece of the inner and end faces as well as conical. All knurling profiles according to DIN 82 can be produced.
Among its offering, QUICK also has knurling tools with interchangeable jaws and knurling wheels available from stock. Wheels with special dimensions and pitches can be customized.
QUICK marking tools can mark workpieces in seconds and on a wide variety of geometries independent of workpiece diameter. They are ideal for machines with small installation space and can mark up to a shoulder.
