The MESI Chipbreaker from Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc. is designed for Swiss turning and small parts machining, particularly in medical and other high precision applications. Providing a low cutting force, it features a 15-degree nose and a sharp 8-degree main edge. Studies have shown the insert to perform with high wear resistance in applications using titanium, according to the company. A wavy cutting edge maintains better chip control (for bar feeder machines), while the incorporation of dimples reduces cutting temperatures. Available geometries include CCGT, DCGT and VCGT; grades include AC510U/520U/530U/AC610M/630M.
