Parting And Grooving Tools

An extended line of parting and grooving tools is now available. The new CoroCut family members are said to improve chip control, lower inventory costs and provide good surface finish and 20 to 40 percent longer tool life than comparable tools. In addition, they enhance productivity and eliminate machining hassles in materials ranging from aluminum to hardened steels and heat resistant super alloys (HRSAs).

An extended line of parting and grooving tools is now available. The new CoroCut family members are said to improve chip control, lower inventory costs and provide good surface finish and 20 to 40 percent longer tool life than comparable tools. In addition, they enhance productivity and eliminate machining hassles in materials ranging from aluminum to hardened steels and heat resistant super alloys (HRSAs). Four new geometries, two new carbide grades, and a wider variety of toolholders and bars are now available. CoroCut tools are designed to withstand high axial cutting forces and provide unmatched strength and stability to maximize feed without vibration. The new, full-radius, CoroCut two-edge, AM geometry insert for aluminum profiling strengthens clamping support and reduces vibration. It is available in Grade H10 carbide in 0.236"(6 mm) and 0.315" (8 mm) widths. The new, precision-ground GF geometry insert is said to hold tighter tolerances. The CoroCut one-edge CR and Q-Cut 7P geometries offer improved chip control, according to the company, and the CR geometry insert features reinforced edges and is useful for deep parting operations. The Q-Cut 7P geometry insert is suitable for first cuts and side turning. New PVD-TiAIN coated carbide grades include the GC 1005 and 4125 optimized for machining HRSAs and stainless steels at higher cutting speeds than conventional grades. Useful for gas turbine machining, both are said to provide high wear resistance, good surface finish and optimal chip formation. CoroCut and Q-Cut toolholders now come in 0 and 90-degree styles and Q-Cut bars in 0 degree versions for internal face grooving. The new holders can hold multiple seat sizes. The strong clamping system provides exceptional accessibility for shallow grooving. The CoroCut 1-2 edge system covers first-cut diameters from 1.339" (34 mm) and the Q-Cut system from 0.945" (24 mm). The cutters lower inventory costs since one holder accommodates both one and two-edge CoroCut inserts.
