How to overcome common challenges
Time consuming insert indexing
The wiper inserts are exchanged at the same time as the working inserts. The patented insert adjustment system provides reliable, accurate insert positioning. The system also allows to adjust the wiper up and down without loosening the cartridge clamping screw.
Frittering or burr on exit
The insert design with a 25° entering angle and different optimized chamfers helps to decrease frittering and burr formation.
Grades GC1010 (dry) and K20W (wet) ensures a better tool life in CGI-material. Wiper and working inserts have the same tool life.
