Special Tools

Thanks to its long-standing experience, Silmax developed a strong propensity to find solutions for complex projects, creating a wide range of special carbide and high-speed steel tools.

After an in-depth study, the engineers of our technical department propose the best solutions, whether it is a tool made to customer design or a special tool developed starting from a specific application.

The development of a special tool by using the know-how acquired through the Research & Development activities allows to manufacture a product that is optimised with regard to base material, tool geometry, surface treatment and PVD coating.

This activity materialises into a cost estimate with delivery time, drawing, technological cutting parameters and technical consulting.

Our consulting activity focuses on the preparation of a comprehensive offer including technical drawings, indication of cutting parameters for an effective use of tools and of delivery time, which usually does not exceed 3-4 weeks.

Our tool applications are successfully used in many industrial sectors, such as those of energy, aerospace, precision mechanics, oil hydraulics and, in general, for all types of machining with chip removal.
