Prominent metalcutting tool manufacturer Sandvik Coromant is about to introduce a new series of carbide-grade inserts for steel turning designed to extend tool life.
Sandvik Coromant is promoting its GC4325 series as coated cemented carbide-grade inserts that feature increased precision characteristics to hone in tolerance accuracy during steel-turning applications. For one, the inserts are designed for ISO P25 specification in application area, which requires the inserts be graded to a high standard during machining operations on a diverse array of steel substrate materials.
In order to account for this high degree of precision, Sandvik developed the inserts with increased temperature resistance. The inserts can operate in higher temperatures while showing less tool wear over time. This allows tools to operate at higher rates on different materials that require advanced speeds, and therefore increases productivity. Sandvik says the GC4325 series can increase productivity by up to 30 percent.
The GC4325 series will be available on October 1.
