The SA range of cutting tools and inserts from Arno specializes in parting-off or cut-off operations in machining, metalworking and plastics applications.

Flexibility is central to streamlining any machining process, especially when it comes to changing out tooling between operations. To aid in this endeavor, Arno Werkzeuge USA—the manufacturer of cutting tools for machining centers and Swiss-type lathes—has introduced the SA series of cutting tools and inserts for grooving and part-off or cut-off operations for North America. This is a modular grooving system with a single toolholder that turns into different tool variants by simply changing the support blade and clamp. This enables combined operations with a single tool. The systems offer chip removal in all three main cutting directions, and the range also features precision ground two- or three-edged cutting inserts in various designs.

The SA range of cutting tools and inserts specializes in parting-off or cut-off operation in machining, metalworking and plastics applications, the company says. The series comes in three different systems to accommodate the requirements of various machining operations in the aerospace, plastics and medical industries, among others. The SA series includes a monoblock, modular and blade-style system, and it is a cost-effective solution for radial grooving.
