Tungaloy’s New -JS Style Chipbreaker Improves Chip Control on Small Parts

Iwaki, February 2019 — Tungaloy is expanding its MiniForce-Turn, an economical turning tool series, to include the -JS style chipbreaker insert promising efficient chip control and machining stability.

MiniForce-Turn features an innovative double-sided positive insert and unique seat interface for secure location, which is designed to provide free cutting as standard single-sided positive inserts do, while enhancing maximum stability and tool economy.

The new -JS style chipbreaker is designed to promote effective chip control in machining small parts. Its cutting edge incorporates a large inclination angle which helps produce smooth chip flow as well as light cutting condition. This geometry virtually eliminates chip nests, decreasing part scraps and machine downtime, while improving finishing quality. The -JS chipbreaker complements the existing MiniForce-Turn chipbreaker offering and broadens the application range in small part machining. The new chipbreaker is available on 6-cornered WXGU0403 inserts and 4-cornered DXGU0703 and VXGU09T2 inserts.
