The NM6 geometry for negative turning inserts are designed for medium steel operations with interrupted cuts. These CVD-coated inserts falls into the toughness category P 20 and P 30 and have corner radii of 0.032", 0.047", 0.063", and 0.093" The NM6 medium range of applications covers a feed rate between 0.016" and 0.024"
and a cutting depth from 0.032" and 0.275".
The NM6 is said to have twice the number of cutting edges than competitive products. Its double-sided technology is said to reduce costs and obtain high process reliability.
Modular Tooling Lines Enable Shop Standardization
Sandvik Coromant says that its modular CoromantEH, CoroTurn SL and Capto tooling lines enable the selection of optimized tooling assemblies to suit all applications using a smaller inventory of standard items.
