Tungaloy has expanded its TungCut series of grooving tools to include the CGP32-CHP parting blade with the ability to internally supply high-pressure coolant.
TungCut features rigid insert clamping for reliable tool life and groove quality during parting operations, the company claims. The CGP32-CHP parting blade enables the tool to internally supply high-pressure coolant to the cutting edge improves chip control, extends tool life, and facilitates higher cutting parameters. In addition, TungCut inserts offer various geometries and grades that excel in parting off operations.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
