Machining Orkot Materials
Orkot® materials are readily machinable by conventional machine shop techniques. As a general guide, methods used for brass, aluminium or lignum vitae will apply for
Orkot® materials. It is preferable to use tungsten carbide turning tools with cutting speeds of 5 metres (20 feet) per second. Orkot® materials must be machined dry without the use of coolant.
