Grooving inserts for 2 mm width, also Imperial sizes
- September 7, 2021
Tungaloy has expanded its TungCut multifunctional grooving and parting-off tool system with 21 total new inserts in a 2.0 mm width as well as imperial specifications.
The TungCut range offers a variety of insert and toolholder variations for OD/ID grooving, face grooving, groove turning, and parting operations. Strong and reliable insert clamping minimizes tool chatter, while enhancing precision and tool life during heavy duty grooving such as groove turning.
Four geometries are available for the 2.0 mm cutting width: DGL for controlled chip flow at low feed rates; multifunctional DTX covering a range of applications such as OD grooving, face grooving, and groove turning; and DTR and STR featuring a full-radius cutting edge for profiling applications. The new inserts are offered in three grades: general purpose AH7025 grade, AH8005 grade for superior machining performance in heat-resistant alloys, and KS05F uncoated grade dedicated for non-ferrous applications.
The inserts are also now available in imperial specifications. Two geometries are offered in this expansion: DGM, for OD grooving and parting-off applications, and DGS, which retains a sharp cutting edge over extended use in various materials.
