Carmex Precision Tools, LLC’s Swiss-Line combines a new type of polygon insert and holder for external turning, grooving, parting and threading. The high precision ground inserts are constructed of solid carbide with specialty coating for long tool life and increased productivity.

Developed for machining a range of materials, a selection of inserts can be used with the same toolholders. Holders are coated to resist abrasion for a long service life.

According to the company, the polygon inserts have been specially designed and constructed to deliver high precision performance, excellent finish and improved production in Swiss-type machining applications. The polygon shape, combined with Carmex’s special clamping system, allows for fast change-over, and the carbide/coating combination is engineered to withstand the stresses of hard machining in a small parts environment.

  • No-Burr Threading Helps Shop Compete

    With the switch from a ground top-notch tool to a pressed Ingersoll threading form tool on one high-volume job, Warren Screw Machine eliminated 2 minutes of hand deburring per part. Not incidentally,  the company also lopped 20 seconds per part off the threading cycle.

  • Getting the Most Out of Hard Turning

    Traditionally, production of most parts made from hard or hardened materials, defined as those at or more than 45 HRc, required dedicated grinding equipment and processes.
