Tungaloy has announced the expansion of its DuoJust-Cut parting, grooving, and threading tool line with 0.6 mm and 0.8 mm width parting inserts.

The DuoJust-Cut insert clamping system provides insert rigidity for enhanced parting, grooving, and threading operations performed predominantly on Swiss-type machines.

New parting inserts are offered in the JXPS style: a 0.6 mm (.024 in.) width insert is designed for maximum parting diameter (CUTDIA) of 6 mm (.236 in.) and a 0.8 mm (.031 in.) width insert for 12 mm (.472 in.) CUTDIA, both furnished with pressed chipbreaker. This intricate chipbreaker creates optimally compressed and curled chips, improving chip evacuation and surface finish. Also, having the thinnest insert width that is commercially available on the market, the inserts remove the least amount of material necessary in every parting process. This helps save material waste, reducing machining costs.

A total of four new inserts are introduced in this expansion in SH725 grade that is designed for a variety of steel and stainless steel machining. The combination of a dedicated coating layer and tough carbide substrate provides the grade with reliability and long insert tool life.
