Cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has introduced its GC4335 insert grade for the turning of steels where unstable conditions or vibration issues prevail. GC4335 is designed to bring about secure and predictable machining, as well as shorter cycle times and better machine utilisation through reduced stoppages and longer insert life. Customers will benefit from an improved process with less risk of insert breakage, as well as reduced cost per component and faster return on investment.
Seco Tools has expanded its family of Duratomic-technology-based TP grades to include TP3501, a grade that provides optimal application security. The new grade is ideal for steel turning applications that involve heavy interruptions, less stable machines, small internal features or weak setups due to part size or shape.
Seco Tools has expanded its solutions for achieving high performance and long tool life with the introduction of the Highfeed 6 – the latest addition to the Highfeed series of indexable-insert milling cutters. This new cutter features a design created specifically to boost material removal rates and handle high chip loads, resulting in substantial productivity increases and exceptional tool life.
