Cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant says that it is adding round geometry inserts to its range of CoroCut QD parting off and grooving tools.

According to the company, round geometry allows profiling with long overhangs in narrow grooves, as well as external profiling, generating recesses and undercuts, and the potential to use non-linear turning and grooving with a full radial bottom.

‘The features and benefits of using round geometry inserts with CoroCut QD holders include better tool life and chip control with a rigid insert seat, internal over and under-coolant for improved process security and chip evacuation, and the potential for use with a Y-axis blade,’ said Dr Angélica González, global product manager.

The inserts are available in three grades: GC1125 grade for finishing in all materials, as well as certain roughing operations in non-ferrous metals, heat-resistant super alloys (HRSAs) and titanium; GC1135 grade for roughing in stainless steel and HRSAs; and GC4335 grade for roughing steel and cast-iron workpieces. The assortment is available in four insert sizes of 3, 4, 6 and 8 mm (0.008, 0.157, 0.236 and 0.315 inch).
