With its CB7015 indexable insert, Sandvik Coromant offers a cost efficient, time saving tool for hard part turning. The tool covers a range of applications and delivers optimal finish quality.

The CB7015 is a CBN grade for a range of applications and delivers optimal finish quality in transmission component production. It is especially suited for turning case-hardened steels (58-65 HRc). Because of the Safe-Lock clamping system, the CBN grade with a wear resistant ceramic binder is also especially useful for dry machining. It complies with all standard shape and position tolerances.

The CBN product range includes inserts with standard corner radii and wiper inserts as well as an Xcel version. The wiper geometry offers a range of process optimizations, including improved finishes for standard cutting data. It also provides higher finish quality with significantly increased feeds—roughness grades far below 3.2 microns can consistently be achieved. With Xcel geometries and feeds of 0.011”, even roughness grades of 1 micron are possible. The Xcel insert, with up to eight cutting edges, enables shorter production times and reduced tool costs per component, the company says. Dry machining avoids the costs for coolant use and offers reduced capital investment and low-cost chip disposal, all of which help to further reduce machining costs.
