Tungaloy Corporation’s SH725, the PVD grade for turning on Swiss lathes, and an expansion of toolholders for the DoMiniTurn external line.

When machining small parts on a Swiss lathe, an insert with a sharp cutting edge and low cutting force is essential. SH725 meets those requirements. Tungaloy developed this coating technology to increase adhesion strength between the coated layer and the substrate, providing not only hardness, but also sharpness on the cutting edge. As a result, SH725 features high wear resistance, a sharp cutting edge and improved chipping resistance.
