According to the company, the tool provides design advantages not previously available with one tool when semi-rough turning into shoulders. In addition, the cutting tool is also said to offer the accessibility and programming of an 80-degree insert, along with reduced wear when compared to a square insert  used at 45-degree entering angle.


Two insert sizes in three grades are available to suit depths of cut from 0.5 mm to 3 mm in intermediate stage machining. Machining into corners to produce complex shapes and  the capability of machining in two directions are among the product’s noteworthy capabilities.
