Tungaloy adds PVD-coated grade AH8015 in several geometry types to its MiniForce-Turn series for machining heat-resistant superalloys, steel and stainless steel.

MiniForce-Turn is a line of turning tools that features an innovative double-sided positive insert and seat interface for secure location, which is as free cutting as standard single-sided positive inserts with maximum stability and tool economy, the company says.

Intended primarily for machining heat-resistant superalloys, the PVD-coated grade AH8015 also exhibits excellent performance in steel and stainless steel machining with a balanced resistance to wear and chipping, the company says.

AH8015 is offered in the -TS, -SS, and -TSW style chipbreakers on six-cornered WXGU0403 inserts and four-cornered DXGU0703 inserts to provide longer and more predictable tool life over existing grades in a range of applications and materials.
