Originally titled 'Chipbreaker for Swiss Turning Features a Low Cutting Force'
Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc. adds MESI chipbreaker for Swiss turning and small parts machining. Featuring a 15-degree nose and a sharp 8-degree main edge, the MESI provides a low cutting force. Studies have shown the MESI to perform with high wear-resistance in applications using titanium. A wavy cutting edge maintains better chip control (for bar feeder machines), while the incorporation of dimples reduces cutting temperatures.
The MESI is suitable for medical parts and high precision parts machining. Available geometries include CCGT, DCGT and VCGT; grades include AC510U/ 520U/530U/AC610M/630M.
