Originally titled 'Inserts Save Money'
In many turning applications, machinists tend to use larger inserts than are actually required for the machining parameters being applied. To prevent this, Iscar’s small-sized Isoturn inserts provide an economical advantage regarding cost per cutting edge, the company says. The inserts are available in a range of geometries, corner radii, new chipformers and the most advanced Sumo Tec carbide grades.
The available geometries are WNMG 33, WNMX 34, CNMG 33, CNMX 34, SNMG 33, DNMG 33, TNMG 33 and TNMX 34. These inserts are generally thicker than the standard inserts of the same sizes, thus providing higher durability, and they can run at feed rates similar to the larger inserts.
