Machine shops faced with identifying ways of achieving secure machining with long and predictable insert life in steel milling operations can turn to GC1130. The insert helps to overcome challenging machining conditions with a clean and intact edge, designed to deliver high metal removal rates and performance levels in both wet and dry machining operations. The grade is offered as the first choice for shoulder milling cutters—CoroMill 390 and CoroMill 490 and chamfer cutter, CoroMill 495.

Flaking, abrupt chipping and thermal cracks are common issues encountered when milling materials in steel applications, especially when faced with unfavorable tool paths and deep cavities or when using coolant. GC1130 has been specifically developed to help production engineers combat the subsequent unwanted effects of short insert tool life and unstable production. Manufactured with Zertivo, a technology that helps amplify the grade’s benefits offers peace of mind through better edge-line security and reduced flaking. A high Cr content fine-grain substrate delivers high resistance to thermal cracks generated because of temperature fluctuations during machining, helping to ensure long and reliable tool life, the company says.
