Milling in acrylate or acetate with a solid carbide end mill

For an OEM eyeglasses manufacturer, we are looking to select a coating that supports milling of acrylate and acetate with an end mill ø 4.0*72 mm.

Problems encountered:

Recommendation is a coating with:

  • Relative abrasion
  • High hardness
  • The ability to maintain sharp cutting edges

Our recommendation

Tetrabond™ Plus is an advanced ta-C coating for machining non-ferrous metals as well as composite and plastic materials. The thin, smooth, and extremely hard coating is designed to maintain maximum cutting edge sharpness in machining abrasive materials.
