  • Smaller & stronger than conventional ISO turning inserts
  • Next generation clamping system : Two directional clamping force
  • Excellent productivity and longer, stable tool life
  • Size Technology


  • 12xD holder - Range: 12.0mm~22.9mm
  • Smooth chip evacuation: Polished flute, widened gullet design due to twisted through coolant channel
  • High accuracy: Cylindrical shank for good run-out
  • High productivity: Deep hole drilling without pecking cycles


  • “MLL” and “L” geometry
  1. Higher rake angle for smooth cutting with reduced cutting force
  2. Optimized insert design to avoid built-up-edge on sticky materials
  3. “L” geometry for heat resistant super alloys such as Inconel, Rene, Ti-alloy
  4. “MLL” geometry for difficult-to-cut materials with higher feed rates
  5. Ideal for applications in aerospace and power generation industries
