Tool Selection Guide App

Vortex Tool has developed a Tool Selection Guide App, designed to simplify tool selection based on a user’s cutting needs. Users input the type of material being cut, the horsepower of the CNC machine, the tool diameter, the thickness of material and the type of cut desired, and the Tool Selection Guide App will recommend the best tool for your application, says the company. The App also includes calculators to determine chipload, feed rate, RPM and metric conversions. Links are also provided for the current Vortex Tool catalog and online ordering. The Vortex Tool Selection Guide App is available for iPhone, iPad, Android Phone, or Android Tablet. A free download is available by visiting or and selecting the Vortex Tool Selection Guide.

Vortex high-quality tools provide higher operating speeds, significantly longer tool life, and long-term value, having built a customer base of over 2,000 companies.
