MACHINABLE WAX-1.5 X 12 CYLINDER

SKU: 15170
Flexbar Machinable Wax- 1.5" dia. x 12" Cylinder

VERY MACHINABLE MATERIAL

You can easily machine Flexbar Machinable Wax without the need for costly and messy coolants or lubricants, because MACHINABLE WAX is "self-lubricating", "non-abrasive" and it will not fuse when machined at high-end spindle rpm's and feed rates.
Unlike wood or plastic, MACHINABLE WAX will not "gum up" on tool bits. As illustrated by the machined and assembled prototype on the front of this bulletin, sharp edges can be maintained, accurate threads can be cut and thin wall sections maintained with the quality of surface finish capable of being produced by your cutting tools and machine. MACHINABLE WAX is not cellular, grainy, or abrasive so "voids" in machined surfaces (common with plastics and wood) and "tool wear" are negligible. Flexbar Machinable Wax will also machine "within designated tolerances" to provide you with a dimensionally accurate prototype that can be assembled for checking.

State-of-the-art Material
Computer-controlled machining and designing methods have revolutionized manufacturing world-wide. With these advancements has arisen a growing need to evaluate data "up front" more economically and safely, in less time and with accurate results. Because of these concerns, the material used in the "prove-out" phase has become a major factor.
 
Machinable wax, (patented) unlike metal, plastic and wood, features all the properties necessary to meet the requirements of CNC and CAD/CAM program proofing. It's very machinable, dimensionally stable, safe to work with and very economical because it is reclaimable and remachinable.
 
 
Economical
Flexbar Machinable Wax will reduce your proofing costs because it is inexpensive, easy to work with and best of all...it can be reclaimed and machined repeatedly. Machinable wax is available in a wide range of blocks and cylinders (standard or custom sizes).
 
 
Safe Material to Work With
Flexbar Machinable Wax has a high flash point of 575°F, and is formulated with non-toxic, self-lubricating components. Machinable Wax, unlike most plastics, will not release any offensive or hazardous dust particles or odors during or after machining. Unlike metal, Machinable Wax does not require coolants for machining and will not produce "sharp" machine chips which otherwise could be unsafe due to splashing. Coolant also obscures visual inspection of piece during machining.
