Greenleaf Corporation’s expanded Grooving and Profiling line consists of a variety of cut-off, grooving and profiling inserts and tooling.
The carbide Groove Turn System (GTS) and Cut-Off System (COS) inserts for grooving, profiling and cut-off have been added to accommodate standard toolholder systems. The GTS groove-turn system offers computer-engineered inserts that are designed to provide chip control when grooving, turning or profiling in any direction. The company’s COS cut-off insert has a positive chip form geometry that is coupled with a PVD-coated grade. According to the company, these properties foster straight, smooth cut-off while promoting long tooling life on demanding materials.
The Greenleaf Grooving and Profiling system, which accepts carbide and ceramic inserts, includes fixed-blade tools. It is also compatible with qualified tool shanks and bars that accept 248 standard support blade combinations.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
