S-Carb | APR

The S-Carb Advanced Productivity Rougher (APR) was engineered for high power, high-efficiency machining of aluminum aerospace structural parts. Material removal rates of 550 cubic inches is achievable with remarkable tool life and product finish. The APR’s MRR capabilities are nearly six times that of its nearest competition based on lab testing. It is easy to see why KYOCERA SGS Precision Tools is known around the world as an authority in aluminum machining with the power and capability of the APR and its sibling tool, APF.
