The composition of its carbide grade, geometry and high-temperature coating are designed to run at or beyond current rates from original equipment manufacturers while offering extended tool life. The insert’s simplified setup and extended tool life reduces change-over and increases throughput. The company says the insert is designed to improve run rates, reduce tool failures and increase capacity.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
