NTK Cutting Tools’ TFX front turning carbide inserts, designed for Swiss-type CNC applications, machines large depths of cut ranging to 0.197" (5 mm) in a single pass. The inserts incorporate a chip-breaker with a sharp cutting edge to optimize chip control and surface finishes. The inserts are available in DM4 (for titanium, cobalt chrome, heat resistant alloys and stainless steels) and ST4 (for stainless steels like 304 and 17-4PH).

Pairing the inserts with a coolant-through holder can improve chip evacuation, surface finish, part tolerance and tool life, says the company. The company’s corresponding TFT series holders have rigid side screw clamping to ensure stable turning by preventing movement of the insert from Z directional cutting forces.
