The vast selection of general turning grades and chip breakers you can choose is almost limitless. To improve productivity in your turning applications, we developed various solutions supporting inserts of different shapes, sizes, and thicknesses. Each of these solutions is designed towards enhancing tool life and productivity. This comprehensive range of cutting tools covers the entire spectrum of materials, allowing you to quickly achieve your material removal rates, tool life, and surface finish goals. A larger nose radius increases strength but increases machine power requirements.
Additionally, it leads to higher vibrations depending on whether the machining operation is finishing, medium, or roughing. A tough cutting edge is necessary for roughing at high cut and feed rates depths. Turning carbide inserts CNMG 432 are a prevalent type of turning insert sold. With this insert, you can achieve a depth of cut of approximately 0.250″ (6.35mm). This tool is intended for general use in back-turning applications in stainless steel, titanium, high-temperature alloys, alloyed steel, and other complex and long chipped materials. You can use three hundred inserts in a typical tool holder. It is naturally not more expensive for the shop to wait until the holder wears out and then replace it. Often thread inserts are used when driving a screw or bolt through the soft material. Narrow cutting-point nose angles permit minor cutting-depth cuts and reduced vibration, while wide cutting-point nose angles allow for significant cutting-depth cuts and increase cutting force. When machining high-speed alloys, feeding fast, and dealing with complex materials, indexable turning tools require fewer tool changes than solid ones.
