CIMT 2015 Showcases TaeguTec’s High-quality Cutting Tools that Shape Future of China
TaeguTec’s participation at this year’s largest and best-known international machine tool exhibition in China, the China International Machine Tool Show, also known as CIMT 2015, witnessed an increase in visitors asking about the company’s newest, technologically advanced cutting tools.
This shift in demand from China’s traditional inquiries of low-cost ISO tools to cutting tools that last longer and produce more has a direct correlation with the global and local economic condition.
The global economy is in a process of profound change and rebalances while, after 30 years of high-speed development, China’s economy is entering into a new developing stage in tandem with the dissolvement of its long term accumulated contradictions of extensive growth.
With old developmental and economic models exhausted, China’s next step is focusing on long-term healthy advancements based on economic development.
After over a decade of high speed growth, China’s machining industry is undergoing a serious adjustment and transformation due to the significant change of the global market climate and other growth factors.
While some manufacturers are still dealing with older machines and cutting tools, other companies in China’s massive automotive sector, its ever growing mold and die industry, its rapidly advancing power generation and wind power industries and important rail sector are looking towards the future, knowing very well that their survival and growth not only in China, but on the world stage, revolves around upgrading their machining practices.
At CIMT 2015, which ran from April 20-25 at the China International Exhibition Center (New Venue) Beijing, a record amount of attendees meandered through the throng of visitors, cutting tool suppliers and machine tool builders to find their way to companies they know and trust will help them adjust their current structure so that they could walk on the sustainable development road by means of using technologically advanced tools.
To help these companies achieve their target of increasing productivity at a lower cost, TaeguTec’s hottest focus products where modeled along with the best and brightest engineers in the business able to answer questions regarding their machining conditions no matter the materials used, and that includes CFRPs and new materials such as high-temperature alloys used in the auto sector that have given most cutting tool companies and auto manufacturers heartaches due to their combination of high hardness and need to produce more quickly and efficiently.
For holemaking, TaeguTec China has a slew of products ready for any machining requirement as well as challenge.
One of the industry’s favorite choices when it comes to drilling into any material is TaeguTec’s DrillRush – the versatile head changeable indexable drill that is constantly being expanded to provide dependable, optimal hole drilling performances on any material.
For producing cost effective large diameter holes, TaeguTec offers the SpadeRush, a new line of high productivity head changeable drills for large diameter hole making that stays within the cycle times necessary to be competitive due to its optimized cutting edge and unique rigid clamping system that generates higher productivity and outstanding performance.
Available as a standard drill in 3xD and 5xD for a diameter range of 26 mm to 41 mm, the SpadeRush’s unique clamping technology enables operators to quickly change drill heads without removing the clamping screw from the holder.
Another popular choice for cost effective machining and higher productivity is the TopDrill line, which has been built to satisfy a growing market demand for flexibility and excellent performance. Also, its true 4-coner inserts are suitable for both internal and external pockets, reduces inventory and promotes cost reduction.
Last but not least in the TaeguTec drilling family is the TwinRush – a product that guarantees excellent performance and high productivity on large diameter holes.
The TwinRush joins together a centering insert with a pair of precise square inserts on either side in order to combine two different drill types onto one drill body, and protects them with TaeguTec’s TT9080 PVD multi-layered coated grade. By doing so, this double effective design increases productivity.
Parting and grooving operations have never been easier since TaeguTec introduced the multi-corner four cutting edge QuadRush line – a family of tools that is known for its high accuracy and surface quality and was recently expanded to handle threading applications; an introduction that makes QuadRush the perfect tool not only because of the quality of the finished product, but also because of its long tool life and economical characteristics.
For milling various alloys, visitors to the TaeguTec booth at CIMT hovered over the Asian metalworking giant’s benchmark high productivity lines, the MillRush and Mill2Rush; two lines that cover the gamut of industries by providing a highly productive line that improves economic output.
Also at the TaeguTec booth was a life-size replica of a rhinoceros. Why not a real wild animal? Because at TaeguTec, the company does not believe in possibly harming any animal for the sake of promotion, so instead, a giant plastic rhino was used and attracted a lot of people taking conventional and funny pictures with the mascot for TaeguTec’s turning champion.
If good things come in small packages then TaeguTec’s new line of mini inserts, the RhinoRush, comes at a time when the current economic downturn and improved casting and forging technologies demand a change from the conventional cutting tool.
Machine shops looking for the power of Mother Nature in order to transform their limited RPM machines into speedy F-1 style workhorses at a fraction of the cost can now look no further than TaeguTec’s Typhoon.

This revolutionary high-speed jet spindle was developed for applications that need high RPMs for small diameter tools on slow RPM machines and is designed to be used for high-speed machining in milling, holemaking and grinding applications.
At CIMT 2015, TaeguTec exhibited tools for what China is starting to become, a country that is rapidly transforming and upgrading from industries that produce goods at high speeds to products of high quality and high benefits in order to cater and excel in today’s new global economic reality.
That is why the theme of CIMT 2015, “New Normal - New Development” is the perfect tag line for the relationship between TaeguTec and Chinese manufacturing companies.
