Products & Services
Ekstrom Carlson manufactures carbide endmills, drills, custom carbide tools, and solid carbide router bits utilizing state of the art 8 axis CNC grinders and inspection equipment to offer better quality cutting tools at better prices. We stock standard tools to our catalog and we can make custom tools to meet customer needs. Carbide router bits and high speed steel router bits for use as cnc router bits and woodworking router bits are kept in stock.
Mistic Mist Systems are considered the most efficient mist systems for a cooling spray.
The compressed air passing through the valve body and to the nozzle tip creates a vacuum in the liquid line which draws coolant from the tank. The coolant is instantly vaporized and forms a conical mist pattern. At the same time, the compressed air expands absorbing heat surrounding the tool and work piece. The result is a cooling effect as well as lubrication.
