R&D Department

To cope with our many projects and for several years, a Research & Development department is at your service for developing the optimized tool for your application.

Our engineers put all their energy to:

  • To develop new tools in collaboration with our customers, based on their machining requirements. We carry out tests of drilling and milling in similar conditions to those used at our partner’s side.
  • Improve tools for new materials or new machining strategies. Our long time expertise enables us to constantly expand our tool's range for new materials machining.
  • Design our machines: part of machinery park consists of machines of our own design and invention. Thus are we optimizing in parallel our tools and means of production.

Coatings

The coatings offered to you by Louis Bélet SA come from leading suppliers on the market. We are able to offer you coated tools at very competitive prices and a very large range of coatings for cutting tools.

Recommended coatings for standard applications

Material
Steel< 700 N/mm² Trio (PO) Nemo (NO)
Steel > 700 N/mm² Nemo (NO) Trio (PO)
Stainless steel Nemo (NO) Trio (PO)
Cast iron Trio (PO) Nemo (NO)
Copper Solo (DA) -

These propositions of coatings apply to the majority of standard usages. They may not be adequate for particular materials, alloys or machining techniques. Don't hesitate to ask us for more specific advices !

Reconditioning

Bélet tools are made to last!

Most tools can be reconditioned, either if manufactured by Bélet or by our competitors. For instance:

  • End mills in solid carbide or HSS, from ø 6 mm
  • Drills in solid carbide or HSS
  • Circular cutters in carbide or HSS
  • Cutting tools in PCD: mills, drills, circular saws, etc...
  • Inserts and turning tools in carbide or PCD
  • Form cutters in solide carbide, PCD or HSS

Reconditioning allows the renewal of your tool at low cost and within a short timeframe. Depending on the dimensions of the tools, of the cost of a new tool or on the condition of the used tools, it may happen that reconditioning is not possible or judicious. In this case, our specialists will contact you to propose an alternative.

Reconditioned tools can also be coated again.

Reprofiling

Profiled tools with constant or logarithmic relief can also be reconditioned on our specialized machines. Form tools with a logarithmic profile have the advantage that they can be resharpen while keeping their exact original profile.

Control

In addition to the common micrometers and profile projectors, Louis BELET SA has cutting edge technology for tool control:
We are able to provide acceptance test certificates 3.1 according to DIN EN 10204:2005-01

Diameter measurement using
laser technology

Micron (μm) measurement of end mills and drills before and after milling

Digital optical systems

Numerical measurement and direct profile comparison with CAD profile

Automated computer-numerically
controlled control machine

This equipment enables the generation of control protocols, available upon request.

Technical Department

The technical department of Louis BELET is here to assist our customers.

You can send us your requests by fax: +41 (0)32 474 45 42 or e-mail: offres@louisbelet.ch

On reception of a tool drawing, machined part drawing, example of an existing tool, or a simple had sketch, our team will make a final drawing of an optimised tool and will submit it to you for validation before execution.
