Thinbit’s inserts tipped with CBN (cubic boron nitride) and PCD (polycrystalline diamond) are available for grooving, turning, face grooving, threading, boring, parting, form tools and custom geometries.

The CBN tipped inserts are said to provide an increased production rate, improved surface finish and dimensional control when used on high-temperature alloys such as Inconel, nickel base alloys and materials with a hardness of Rockwell C-35 or harder. The PCD tipped inserts are said to provide an increased production rate, improved surface finish and dimensional control when used on nonferrous and abrasive metal such as aluminum, bass and copper.

The Inserts also fit all L series toolholders and can be used in conventional, Swiss and CNC machines.

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
