There is nothing more productive for a metalworker to have a unique high-precision cutting tool for machining multiple materials, which will help him minimize inventory. This way, they can work with peace of mind, be more efficient, productive, and profitable than their competition.
But the reality is that there is no suitable tool to work multiple materials that allow efficient machining. Continued frustration over the loss of work orders, poor performance, and competitiveness led to losses in the workshop—moreover, frustration from high inventory costs, re-programming, and wasted time finding an ideal tool.
With its Multi-Material concept, FM Carbide is a high-quality tool that helps to machine multiple materials, optimizes the inventory of tools, and allows the workshop to position itself a few steps ahead of its competition and become a transformer of the metalworking industry.
The Canela group was established in 1967 by Ramon Canela. The former activity was welding and sub-contracting jobs, but in 1974 the manufacturing of tools for indexable inserts began using part of the machinery acquired in the previous years. In 1977 Microfusió Catalana was founded and started metal casting using the lost-wax process as an additional activity to manufacturing tools.
The company was the embryo of a large family business, carried in the early days by Ramon Canela and his wife Maria Rosa Vinyes, his son Alex Canela and his daughter Silvia Canela. The family continues carrying on the business.
Canela is nowadays the only tool manufacturer of its size globally that a large group has not been acquired. The quality of Canela products is well known worldwide, and many tools coming out of their manufacturing plants will be later shown by the major brands in the market. The present production capacity is over 200.000 tools per year.
The Hot Mill! This tool is ideally used for hard and aggressive milling and cutting applications. It is used to cut tough alloys such as Stainless Steel, Inconel, and Titanium at high metal removal rates (MRR). The Hot Mill is in high demand in the automotive, defense, and medical industries.
Our variable indexed accelerator carbide end mill is offered in 4 and now 5 flutes in AlTiN coating and Sky coating.
Our Spoon Cutter is engineered and designed ideally for Aluminum and Non-Ferrous applications and is extremely popular in the aerospace and mold and die industries. It is offered in uncoated, and Zirconium Nitride (ZrN) coated.
Aluminum is becoming a high demand of material because of its factors that it consist such as:
- High strength to weight ratio,
- High electrical and thermal conductivity.
- Corrosion resistance by many other metals.
ROUGHER END MILLS - The Turbo Mill is used for plunging, milling, roughing, and slotting multiple materials such as cast iron, steel, and titanium; minimizes chattering and absorbs vibrations. It is offered uncoated, TiCN coating, AlTiN coating, and our new Sky Coat.The HTC Turbo Mill is able to absorb vibration even at its maximum and can be used under low power utilization for milling.
Fill the form, and we design the tool that you need, then you can make your setup more rigid. By answering our 5-Minute questionnaire, we can manufacture drills and endmills specific to your needs. It is not what we want to design for our catalogs; it is about manufacturing the right tool that your setup needs. Your design will improve the tool life and increase speed. Offerings outside of the 2-Day turn program, other custom tools will be delivered in 2 weeks bright and three optional coatings. Unless it is something unique that we need to have special material built. Multiple coatings are offered on standard lead tooling. Additionally, we are a complete source for custom coolant hole design and standard solid carbide tools, with more than 125 years of Carbide tooling experience and knowledge, all manufactured in the U.S.A.
