Machining Orkot Materials

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 OrkotĀ® 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.

For specific details of bonding agents and conditions please see our engineering manual in the Literature section, or contact our Technical department.
