Manufactured from high quality carbon steel, Dead Centers have a solid construction
with no moving parts. Fully hardened for increased resistance to wear.
Available in two types - Full and Half Dead Centers. Half Dead Centers come with a full carbon steel construction or with Carbide tips. Full Dead Centers are additionally available with High Speed Steel tips
In centers with carbide/HSS tips, the tips are brazed into a close tolerance socket for maximum strength Carbide tip centers are preferred in applications where the workpiece has a hardness close to or more than that of Carbon Steel Dead Centers. Carbide tip imparts durability and calls for less downtime for regrinding of point. High speed steel Dead Centers are especially useful in applications that involve shock.
