Turning with a stronger corner radius
- March 3, 2021
Their FP2 geometry, with an 18° rake angle and soft hone, insures reduced cutting forces and vibration.
The WEP10C coated cermet grade with multilayer TiCN TiAlN PVD coating and fine cermet micro grain extend tool life. The combination of edge preparation and grade ensures dimensional stability over long periods of time.
The new FP2 geometry also uses “minus tolerance” or “maximum corner radius” tolerance, which presents a stronger corner radius than a standard ISO/ANSI corner radius. This stronger corner radius boosts tool life and surface finish. These new inserts are well suited for finishing thin-walls, small diameters, long components, fine boring and components with unstable clamping.
