Dapra Introduces Pressed-to-Size Toroid Inserts for Ultra-Aggressive Metal Cutting and Enhanced Tool Life
New high-performance CNC-pressed Toroid inserts from DAPRA are designed for very aggressive metal cutting and long tool life. These thicker inserts offer enhanced heat absorption capabilities and feature a stronger cutting edge for heavier chip loads and greater shock absorption. Positive top rake additionally results in reduced cutting forces and lower torque.
These pressed-to-size inserts are available in either "T" or "D" variations. The T-land offers a reinforced cutting edge for steels, irons and hard milling, while the dished face provides a high-positive cutting edge for stainless steels, high-temperature alloys and gummy materials.
This new insert line will fit current DAPRA Toroid end mills and shell mills with the aid of a thicker top clamp. Pressed round ("button") inserts, octagonal inserts and high-feed inserts will become available in sizes from 1/2" to 3/4" in the coming months.
