Tungaloy expands the T515 insert line with a new CVD grade for cast iron turningClick image to enlarge

Tungaloy Corp. has developed an expansion for T515, a CVD grade for cast iron turning. The items included in the expansion are positive inserts, large-sized inserts, and wiper inserts.

Tungaloy says the T515 grade, with exclusively engineered cemented carbide substrate and coating, is versatile and perfect for cast iron turning.

With enhanced adhesion between the substrate and the coating, T515 delivers strong resistance to chipping and flaking, thus offering more stable machining. By thickening the alumina (Al2O3) layer by 1.7 times, Tungaloy has succeeded in drastically improving wear resistance in high-speed machining and realized astoundingly long tool life.

PremiumTec, the Tungaloy’s original surface treatment technology, improves the surface smoothness of the coating for outstanding resistance to chipping and built-up edge.

Now T515 is available with its positive and large-sized inserts, an even vaster range of application area can be covered in cast iron turning. With wiper inserts, high-feed range can be covered, improving customers’ productivity and reducing their production cost.
