Tungaloy has expanded its MiniForce-Turn tool series to include the -JS style chipbreaker insert for efficient chip control and machining stability. The MiniForce-Turn features a double-sided positive insert and a seat interface for secure location, designed to enable free cutting while enhancing stability and tool economy.

The -JS style chipbreaker is designed to promote chip control when machining small parts. Its cutting edge incorporates a large incline angle to produce smooth chip flow as well as light cutting conditions. This geometry is said to eliminate chip nests, decreasing part scraps and machine downtime, while improving finishing quality.

The -JS chipbreaker is said to complement the existing MiniForce-Turn chipbreaker offering and broadens the application range in small-part machining. The chipbreaker is available on six-cornered WXGU0403 inserts and four-cornered DXGU0703 and VXGU09T2 inserts.
