Iwaki, July 2019 — Tungaloy expands its TetraForce-Cut, a 4-edged indexable grooving tool series, to include the new TCL27 style chipbreaker.
TetraForce-Cut’s indexable insert boasts cost-effective, 4 cutting edges with a grooving depth of up to 6.4mm. The toolholder has a unique insert clamping structure which ensures high repeatability and accuracy for maximum insert stability and tool life.
The new TCL27 style chipbreaker features a deep dimple profile on the rake face, providing low cutting force and effective chip control during difficult grooving operations. The geometry is available in a universal AH725 grade which improves machining efficiency and stability.
