Dapra Corporation’s precision ground ballnose inserts with PCD tips afford excelent tool life for milling soft, nonferrous materials such as aluminum and graphite, the company says. Their expected life is approximately50 to 100 times that of normal carbide-coated inserts. PCD-tipped ballnose inserts are precision ground to provide a sharp, accurate cutting radius, according to Dapra. Available with 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4” diameters, these inserts are designed for use with the company’s standard steel, carbide core and carbide shank cutter bodies.
