AC1030U Coated grade for small parts turning with G class chip breaker.

Sumitomo Tool has developed a new coated grade for the turning of small precision parts.

The AC1030U grade is also suitable for small inner diameter grooving applications. It is a PVD coated grade with ‘Absotech Bronze’ technology combined with a special substrate. The cutting edge has improved resistance against adhesion and micro chipping.
