G 9610 grade in actionClick image to enlarge

Greenleaf Corporation recently introduced carbide insert grade G-9610.

Greenleaf says this grade delivers a 25 percent increase in material removal rate and up to a 100 percent increase in tool life versus the competition when machining titanium.

Utilizing an innovative PVD coating combined with a proprietary sub-micron substrate, G-9610 provides added productivity for turning titanium-based alloys. The smooth, lubricious coating is wear-resistant and chemically stable, which helps protect the heat-resistant substrate and allows for higher speeds and extended tool life in continuous cuts.

Other key attributes of the G-9610 grade include:

  • High resistance to built-up edge (BUE), chemical wear, abrasive wear, and loss of hardness at high temperatures;
  • Best applied at higher speeds and moderate feed rates;
  • Retains a sharp edge longer, relieving cutting forces and excessive heat.

“This is a breakthrough technology for machining one of the most difficult materials – titanium,” says Bernie McConnell, Greenleaf’s executive vice president—commercial. “We are proud of our R&D team for again raising the bar and delivering a new titanium turning grade that offers increased value and productivity to our customers.”

Inserts in grade G-9610 are available in various geometries and chipforms.
