Tungaloy is growing its TetraMini-Cut grooving tool family by adding items to its TCG18 insert lines. Compact and offering economical, four-edged geometry, the line incorporates a rigid insert clamping system that provides indexability and accuracy, extending insert life.

The company is adding 40 inserts to its line, covering a wider spectrum of workpiece profiles, materials and machine setups ranging from small and miniature parts in Swiss-type machining to general-lathe grooving and threading applications. The inserts are available in AH7025, a dedicated grooving grade optimized for resistance to chipping and plastic deformation. This grade is designed to provide secure performance and high metal-removal rates in demanding operations.
