Why is total cost per hole reamed far lower with carbide tipped reamers despite its higher initial cost?
Carbide runs at higher Higher feeds & speeds due to heat resistant cutting edges and this reduces your machine cycle time per part. Carbide also provides consistent quality: It maintains hole size and surface finish far longer than steel. That is a direct result of longer tool life which reduces down time for tool changes. At the end of the run, your shop is more profitable using carbide tipper reamers from Hannibal Carbide.
