The WEP insertable tooling system, which is individually ground based on part specifications, results in significant unit cost reductions because of substantial time savings during tool change-over as only the insert is indexed or exchanged and not the entire tool.

Schwanog’s three-cutting edge, lay down tool is designed for machining internal grooves. The WEP insertable tooling system, which is individually ground based on part specifications, results in significant unit cost reductions because of substantial time savings during tool change-over as only the insert is indexed or exchanged and not the entire tool. Grooving, including all chamfers, can be achieved in one operation. 

The tool can also be used for cutting high alloy materials. Holders are available in all common versions with coolant-through technology. Repeatability is ≤ 0.0004 inch.
