Sandvik Coromant Thin parting off and deep grooving tools save material
Belgium – Wider insert blades cut away more material during parting off operations.
Using a thinner insert blade wastes less material and also allows for more parts per bar when parting off using a bar feeder, Sandvik Coromant says. The company's Coro-Cut QD parting off and deep grooving tools are now available in 1, 1.2 and 1.5 mm with internal high-pressure coolant for jobs when machining expensive materials or in large-batch production, or both, where material savings is a requirement: like in machining components made of expensive materials such as heat resistant alloys like inconel, titanium and cobalt chrome. Insert handling is accomplished with insert cam keys. Each Coro-Cut QD comes with a cam key that allows the user to leave the finger of the blade in the open position to provide the use of both hands for insert positioning. With the turn of the cam key, the new insert clamp offers improved rigidity for process security. The Coro-Cut QD toolholders are made of the same steel as Coro-Cut QD, resulting in 12% higher tensile strength, Sandvik says.
