Dormer Pramet’s NF1 and NF2 positive chipbreakers support turning applications in stainless steel while the FF2, FM2 and RM3 chipbreakers support steel and cast iron.

The NF1 is a universal chipbreaker for fine finishing to medium machining, peripherally ground to provide a very good surface finish, the company says. The NF2 chipbreaker incorporates a small stabilizing T-Land and covers a range of applications from semi-finishing to light roughing.

The FF2 chipbreaker has a positive rake angle and depth of cut from 0.01 inch for fine finishing applications in low carbon steels. The FM2 chipbreaker is for finishing to medium machining and features a protective land suitable for continuous and interrupted operations. The highly resistant RM3 chipbreaker is for roughing applications in steels and cast irons and is suitable for unfavorable machining conditions.

The SF2 and SF3 positive inserts are designed to provide a secure and dependable option for turning applications for S-group materials and high performance alloys. The SF2 chipbreaker is for fine turning at the lowest possible feeds while the SF3 chip breaker, with its positive inclined cutting edge, supports finishing operations. Especially effective when used on small and slender components, both inserts offer a sharp cutting edge with minimal radius. This promotes low cutting forces which, in turn, prevents work hardening and ensures a high quality surface finish.
