Tungaloy further expands its ISO-EcoTurn line of economical turning inserts to include new geometries and nose radius size for precision finishing of steel.

ISO-EcoTurn inserts

ISO-EcoTurn inserts, while downsized for tool economy, incorporate the identical chipbreaker geometry and thickness of regular-sized inserts to maintain the same cutting performance at a depth of cut up to 3.0 mm (0.12"). Typically, when an insert is downsized, the thickness of the insert is reduced as well. However, these inserts preserve the thickness of standard inserts in order to maintain fracture resistance. Because of reduced volume per insert, these inserts decrease cost per insert on the production line without compromising insert performance.

The insert lines include -TSF geometry for finishing applications, -TF geometry for precision finishing, as well as 0.2-mm nose radius size for corner accuracy.

The inserts are offered in T9215 and T9225 grades, the company’s latest CVD grade series designed to provide exceptional wear resistance and prolonged tool life in steel turning, the company says.
