Steadyline(TM) Turning Bars perform static and rotating operations.

December 23, 2014

Steadyline™ Turning Bars feature GL connection that has polylobe taper interface with two 180° positions which orient tool cutting edges face up or down for effective chip control. Also, connection also offers locking capability via integrated clamping ring that draws in tool head for secure, stable taper-face contact. Accomplished via dynamic passive system inside holder body, rigidity and stability reduce unwanted vibrations during cutting. Coolant supply channels enhance chip evacuation.

Steel Turning Grades optimize transmission manufacturing.

October 10, 2014

Offering high wear resistance, GC4315 and GC4325 with Inveio™ are designed for automotive industry. GC4315 supports soft stage turning in stable conditions, while tougher steel turning grade GC4325 manages interrupted cuts and uneven depths of cut at high speeds. If spindle speed limit prevents full use of their capacity, maximum productivity can be achieved by applying higher feed rates. Both are suitable choices for outer-diameter turning, copying, and profiling. Read More

Turning Inserts offer smooth cutting and wear resistance.

March 19, 2014

Available in 6 grades for turning stainless as well as grades for steels and cast irons, Beyond™ MR (medium roughing) inserts feature smooth cutting action and stable edge performance that accelerate cycle times and extend tool life. Geometry maximizes smooth cutting and chip flow while minimizing stress, and positive rake angle helps control degree of cutting forces and promotes cutting edge strength. Rake profile, without points of load concentration, results in stable insert body. Read More
