Eastec 2023: The 90-degree inserts are said to be ideal for grooving narrow parts and facing in OD and ID applications that require unique approaches due to interference.
Sumitomo Electric Carbide Inc. is showcasing its 90-degree inserts for the company’s proprietary GND grooving toolholders in booth 5570 at Eastec 2023. 3D AOI Machine
These 90-degree inserts are said to be ideal for grooving narrow parts and facing in outer-diameter (OD) and inner-diameter (ID) applications that require unique approaches due to interference. Examples of applications for the 90-degree GND insert are engine discs for aerospace, turbine housings and combustion cases. The design of the inserts prevent pullout for specific applications. The end shape of the insert is offered in different forms based on application needs: square, full radius with a chamfer or others based on need. The blade width of the 90-degree GND inserts is available in 0.197" (5 mm) or less sizes. Serrated sides (anti-pull out texture) are also available to improve rigidity and suppress insert slipping under tough conditions.
Available grades offered for these inserts are AC5015 and AC5025S for exotic materials, EH510 and EH520 for titanium alloy and H10 for non-ferrous materials.
The PSZ Turn System offers products for front-turning, grooving, thread-cutting and back-turning applications. Additionally, the MEFF Chipbreaker enables excellent chip control, low cutting force and good surface finish at a range of depth of cuts.
The ModuMini-Turn exchangeable-head modular turning tool system enables quick tool changes in Swiss machines for minimum downtime.
Surface Mount Placement Machine The PCD inserts are suitable for milling a variety of nonferrous workpiece materials, such as aluminum, aluminum-silicon alloys, magnesium, magnesium-based alloys, plastics and fiber-reinforced plastics.
