ACT manufactures an excellent line of quality Cubic Boron Nitride products. ACT CBN tooling is designed to provide increased tool life, great surface finish, and dimensional control, while enabling you to hold a closer tolerance. The materials we excel with but, are not limited to would be tool and die steels, cast irons, hardened steel, and powdered metal. This material works best if the hardness value is over 50 Rc. However, hard turned parts will usually be in the range of 55-68 Rc. The approach to machining hardened steel depends on the hardness and its depth (if case hardened).
