Designed specifically for the oil and gas industry, Greenleaf Corporation’s expanded Ring Max line of ring groove tooling is suited for difficult to machine materials. Combined with the company’s WG-300 or WG-600 whisker-reinforced ceramic inserts, the ring groove cutters can reduce cutting times from 30 min. to less than 1 min., the company says.
The line can rough and finish API ring grooves in Inconel 625-clad overlay in less than a minute. Also, it creates industry-standard API grooves, including BX, R and RX styles. The adjustable and replaceable cartridge design makes maintenance easy, the company says.
