Alesa Cutting Tools (Tough Materials)
Alesa is a Swiss company with some incredible ideas and technology especially suited for machining and working with difficult materials. If you're working with high tensile stainless steels such as duplex, or super duplex, or nickel and cobalt based alloys or other difficult materials such as Inconel, titanium or other aircraft grade materials you need to take a close look at Alesa cutting tools.

Alesa takes a close look at the cutting edge and angle of a tool. With their ground edge technology the cutting surfaces on their tools are able to slice through different types of materials with reduced heat and effort.
|In the above picture a standard carbide insert is compared to an Alesa Ground Edge Steel insert. The Alesa ground insert cutting edge slices through the material easily with its sharp edge creating a cleaner chip with less pressure on the material and insert. This also reduces the amount of heat generated and energy wasted. The standard carbide cutting edge shears the material making it difficult to work with tough materials as well as requiring more torque and stability from the machine used. Also notice below the cutting edge the standard insert compresses the material making cutting a second pass more difficult as well.|
Alesa cutting tools work with a wide variety of materials because of the geometry and cutting edge. Not only will you save time by reducing the time it takes to machine a piece, you won't need to change cutting tools when changing your working material.
Alesa cutting tools not only remove more material per pass, they also help with chip management by having smaller cooler chips. Alesa cutting tools will reduce your machining time while getting more material removal out of each tool saving you time and money.
