Hardbreaker Series

t_518_t_01

CBN inserts with integrated chipbreaker for improved hard turning productivity

CBN inserts with chipbreaker ideal for carburized layer removal and finishing hardened steel

Applications & Features

Internal turningExternal turning

HS chipbreaker

Optimized chipbreaker design for excellent chip control during hard turning at aggressive conditions

  • Designed for high feed machining.
  • Provides excellent chip control for a wide range of D.O.C. and feed rates.
  • Edge preparation is designed to prevent catastrophic failure.

HP chipbreaker

Designed for finish machining of hardened parts with close tolerances

  • Optimized chipbreaker geometry significantly reduces cutting force imposed on the cutting edge, ensuring long tool life.
  • The edge preparation is designed to generate low cutting force, providing chatter-free machining and close tolerances.
  • The built-in wiper yields excellent surface quality and good chip control.

HF and HM chipbreakers

  • Suited for hard turning applications requiring great D.O.C. such as carburized layer removal.
  • Effective chip breaking is possible for a wide range of hard materials.
  • BXA20 and BXM20 CBN grade inserts are available for aggressive cutting depths.
