GND grooving toolholders from Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc. are engineered to reduce chatter and eliminate vibration. Featuring high rigidity bodies and single-piece special steel construction, the GND produces less chatter and eliminates vibration.
GND toolholders also deliver steady performance for turning, profiling, facing and cut-off applications. Because of sintering technology, the GND tool inserts offer improved tolerance of ±0.0012” (±0.03mm) for all grooving widths from 0.079” to 0.250” (2.0 to 6.0 mm).
GND toolholders also provide special chipbreakers for various machining applications. Each of the six chipbreakers serves a specific purpose from turning to profiling to facing. The GND lineup features the following chipbreakers: MG, a general feed type for turning; ML, a low feed type for multi-purpose use; GG, a general feed type for grooving; GL, a low feed type for grooving; CG, a general feed type for cut-off, and RG a general feed type for profiling.
