HF EVOlution is the Osawa family of micrograin carbide endmills for universal application with coatings and cutting edges specifically designed for high performance machining of all ISO materials. The HF EVOlution endmills are available in a broad range of types, lengths and radii. They are the ideal tools for both mass production and small batch manufacturing, thanks to the outstanding performance delivered and the universal applicability. Thanks to the variable helix geometry VH with unequal pitch UP and to the highly sophisticated cutting edge preparation, the HF EVOlution endmills enable the highest level of performances in terms of tool life, volume of chip removed, productivity and surface finishing. 2 families of tools with application-specific geometries. - HF UNI (VH+UP), designed for milling of materials with hardness up to 40 HRC: steel (ISO P), stainless steel (ISO M), cast iron (ISO K) and super alloys (ISO S), such as Inconel or Titanium. The HF UNI range is now extended with the new HF UNI SC “smooth cut” which reduces significantly the cutting forces thanks to the cutting edge geometry, becoming particularly suitable in case of machining with less powerful machines. - HF HARD (UP) for steel (ISO P), stainless steel (ISO M), cast iron (ISO K), super alloys (ISO S), hardened steel (ISO H) milling, with hardness up to 55 HRC.

Yamawa is a Japanese manufacturer among the world leaders in the production of threading tools Colored rings - Material specific Every application has a specific tap, easily distinguished by the color of the ring on the shank. The series of Colored Rings taps ensure the best performances for each specific application condition: blue ring for stainless steel, including difficult-to-machine materials, such as AISI 316 and DUPLEX; red ring for high resistance and hardened steels; orange ring for nickel alloys with hardness up to 32HRC; pink ring for Titanium alloys, Nickel alloys with hardness above 32HRC; white ring for grey and spheroidal cast iron; green ring for non-ferrous materials. High speed · Fast Series - With a cutting speed of up to 3 times the standard values, this series lowers the cost of tapping, without reducing accuracy. · Ultra Fast Series - The geometry of these internal coolant taps is specifically designed for high speed tapping on rigid and synchronized tapping machines. It is mandatory to use high-precision spindles. Universal use The AU series taps represent the universal solution for steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, and aluminum; suitable for both conventional or rigid tapping. The AU series is the result of a revolutionary manufacturing process, based on the use of high-precision blanks allowing the production of tools with the tightest tolerances. The accuracy and innovative geometry of these taps guarantee a controlled run-out, cutting force reduction and a significant improvement in chip evacuation, even at high speeds. General purpose It is the ideal solution when working on small batches with different materials, but still looking for a reliable tap in all situations. Yamawa general purpose taps allow a reduction of storage and tool replacement costs, without compromising the quality of production. They are available in all commonly used thread standards and in a very wide range of sizes. Thread forming taps More resistant and stable than cutting taps, thread-forming taps eliminate all the problems related to production, removal, and disposal of chips. The geometry of the lobes and crests allows the cutting speed to be increased and to extend tool life at the same time, also thanks to the addition of treatments (OX, NI) or surface coatings. Yamawa range offers different kinds of thread-forming taps that include general purpose taps, taps for specific applications on non-ferrous materials, steel and stainless steel, with and without surface treatments. Dies Yamawa produces its dies using the most modern manufacturing processes, creating tools that are universally recognized for their accuracy and reliability. Yamawa range includes solid dies, spiral point dies, rolling dies, and gas pipe threading dies. Centering tools Yamawa's centering tools are equipped with helical grooves on both ends, to ensure effective chip removal and to reduce the risk of breakage. A reduced length cutting section with rounded ends makes Yamawa centering tools extremely solid. These tools are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
