Iscar is expanding the Heliturn Lay Down family and application range with new inserts and tools, produced with Sumo Tec grades. Designed for reliable and fast metal removal during heavy machining applications, the WNMX, CNMX and DNMX inserts have high-positive radial, helical cutting edges and positive rake angles to reduce cutting forces and vibration. This enables internal turning at high machining parameters, exerting low cutting forces and reducing vibrations. Also, their 88-degree corner angles are said to increase strength.
