Iwaki, May 2021 — Tungaloy has expanded its innovative MiniForce-Turn turning tool series by adding M-class tolerance inserts to the insert line for manufacturers seeking to increase productivity and profitability in Swiss-type machining.

Featuring double-sided positive insert and unique seat interface for secure retention, MiniForce-Turn turning insert can provide free cutting as standard single-sided positive inserts do, while enhancing maximum stability and tool economy.

This expansion has added M-class tolerance inserts in CXMU and DXMU style to the MiniForce-turn series, in addition to the existing line of ground-to-size G-tolerance inserts, expanding the tool’s application range.

The new M-class tolerance inserts are available in TS style chipbreaker designed for medium to finish cutting, providing effective chip control in a wide range of material groups from steel to exotic metals.

New insert grades include T9215 and T9225, part of Tungaloy’s next-generation T9200 CVD coated grade series, for high speed steel turning and AH8015 of the AH8000 series that boasts proven performance in exotic materials. These additions of high performance grades enhance the insert offering with longer tool life and secure machining in all material groups. Total of 48 inserts and 16 ID turning toolholders have been added in this expansion.
