Kyocera Precision Tools has expanded the insert lineup of the GBA grooving system with the PR1625 grade designed for grooving steel and stainless steel. PR1625 is designed to provide hardness and toughness during groovin operations, incorporating a stable carbide base material and Megacoat Nano coating for resistance to wear when grooving light as well as heavily interrupted cuts.

The GBA grooving system features inserts with three usable cutting edges. These inserts are available in three grades: PR1215 for general purpose grooving, TN620 for surface-finish-oriented grooving, and PR1625 for interrupted cuts. The tool’s GM chipbreakers are designed to maintain smooth chip control and provide a more stable groove in a range of shallow grooving applications.
