Expansion of internal and external toolholders for EcoTurn, the economical insert series

 

Tungaloy Corporation is pleased to announce the expansion of internal and external toolholders for the EcoTurn series – the economical, small insert series that receives favorable reputations in the market.

The EcoTurn inserts, despite being dimensionally small, incorporate the identical chipbreakers and insert thicknesses as the regular-sized ISO turning inserts, which are closely attributed to the insert’s cutting performance; therefore, the EcoTurn inserts are able to provide the same cutting performance as the regular-sized inserts when removing a depth of cut equal to or less than 3.0mm in general turning operations. The insert thickness is usually reduced when the downsized inserts are used, resulting in lessening fracture resistance. The EcoTurn inserts, however, have the thickness of the regular-sized inserts and deliver the same level of fracture resistance.

By simply reducing the size of the insert, the EcoTurn increases economic benefits compared with the regular-sized inserts. The EcoTurn inserts, in addition to its highly economic potential, provide the same level of exceptional cutting performance as the regular-sized inserts and will strongly support the serious reduction of machining costs.

Due to the expansion of internal and external toolholders, EcoTurn covers the most application range of the regular-sized inserts and all the application area for steel turning, which helps manufacturers increase the productivity. The EcoTurn inserts are designed so as to use the dimensionally smaller inserts while providing excellent cutting performance and significant cost reduction at the same time.

Main Features:

  • All the application area of steel turning is covered by the expansion of internal and external toolholders.
  • Downsizing inserts reduces resource consumption, providing economic advantage.
  • The cutting performance is the same as the regular-sized inserts while the size is reduced.
  • Expanded items: 40 toolholders
