Tungaloy’s WavyJoint CBN inserts are a CBN brazing technology for higher productivity in hard turning operations such as steel parts.

The CBN tip brazed with a conventional brazing technology is prone to detach, or de-braze, from its carbide base insert when turned dry at a large depth of cut, so operators have to use multiple, small cutting depth passes.

The insert is designed to improve machining efficiency, enabling hard turning in a single pass at a large depth of cut and at a higher feed rate.
