The new CB7105 and CB7115 grade inserts from Sandvik Coromant have been specially designed for hard part turning. Benefits of the CB7105 include lower cost per part through high speed machining or longer tool life at lower speed, while the CB7115 achieves that same goal when aiming for a one-cut strategy at high speed, the company says.

The CB7105 should be used for continuous cut, smaller depth of cut and smaller chip loads at high speed, and the CB7115 for continuous to light interrupted cut or large chip loads at medium to high speed. New generation cubic boron nitride materials enhance crater wear resistance and fracture resistance at high cutting speed in case-hardened and induction-hardened materials, and a TiN-PVD coating for excellent surface finish also helps identify used cutting edges.

  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.

    Production of micro threads can be challenging, but using the most suitable tools for a given application can simplify the task.
