Application-specific chip-breaker geometries provide a significant advance in cutting performance compared with conventional plain ground inserts.
The inserts are offered in two chip-breaker geometries, tailored to finishing or general-purpose machining, and three PCD grades in many common shapes.
The UP geometry is designed for medium machining and finishing and also features a chip-breaker design with the optimised size and spacing of the chip-breaking element for improved performance, according to the company.
This diverse range of inserts, with or without chip-breaker, enables customers to machine anything from soft materials through to mild and stainless steel.
