Tungaloy Corp.’s grade AH8015 inserts have a double-sided insert geometry that is said to bring benefits in tool economy and productivity.

Tungaloy Corp.’s grade AH8015 inserts are part of the DoFeed series, a high-feed milling cutter series with a close-pitched insert alignment, intended for various applications where removal of large stock is required, such as profiling and pocketing processes in die and mold shops. The double-sided insert geometry is said to bring benefits in tool economy and productivity.

AH8015 is a PVD grade with a coating composition of AlTiN. The multilayered coating configuration with high aluminum content improves resistance to chipping and built-up edge, improving machinability for smearing materials typically used in the die and mold industry. A submicron carbide grade is used for the substrate for improved wear resistance. 

High insert density enables milling at high feed rates for machining efficiency. The grade also boosts the insert’s resistance to wear and built-up edge when milling hard materials, as well as steel, cast iron, and heat resistant super alloys.
