Tungaloy has added the PVD-coated AH8015 grade in several geometry types to its MiniForce-Turn series for machining heat-resistant superalloys, steel and stainless steel. The cutting tool series features a double-sided positive insert and special seat interface for secure insert location.

Intended primarily for machining heat-resistant superalloys, the new grade is said also to exhibit high performance in steel and stainless steel machining with a balanced resistance to wear and chipping. AH8015 is offered in the -TS, -SS, and -TSW styles of chipbreakers on six-cornered WXGU0403 inserts and four-cornered DXGU0703 inserts to provide longer and more predictable tool life.
