Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc. has expanded its lineup to include EEG and EEF chipbreakers for exotics and stainless steel alloys. Designed for roughing applications, the EEG Chipbreaker features ball-shaped projection breakers for enhanced chip control.
A two-step cutting edge at the front of this general-purpose breaker reduces crater wear and produces a superior surface finish when machining exotics and stainless steel alloys. The EEG performs with high wear resistance and chip control, reducing lead-time and increasing productivity.
The EEF chipbreaker has been developed and tested for high chip control during finishing operations. A unique slot on the rake face reduces heat generation and extends tool life, while a 20º cutting edge reduces wear.
