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.
