CoroCut® QF

Clockwise or counter clockwise spindle rotation

  • Choose QFT for M04 (Clockwise spindle rotation seen from face surface)
  • Choose QFU for M03 (Counter-clockwise spindle rotation seen from face surface)

A- or B curve

  • A-curve: For internal machining
  • B-curve: For face grooving to boss

Insert width

Use the widest insert and tool that can be used for your groove. A wider holder has higher stiffness and gives more stability.

Maximum cutting depth (CDX)

Always use a tool with shortest possible cutting depth (CDX) to attain maximum stability.

Diameter range of the first cut (DAXIN and DAXX)

Use the tool for the largest diameter that fits your groove. A tool for a larger diameter is less curved and hence more stiff and stable. It also gives improved chip control.

Machine interface: QS™ shank, shank, Coromant Capto® or CoroTurn® SL head

  • Coromant Capto®, QS™ shanks and shanks: only with B-curve
  • CoroTurn® SL head: both A- and B-curve

0° or 90° holder?

  • QS™ shanks and shanks: 0° or 90°
  • CoroTurn® SL head and Coromant Capto®: only 0°

Right- or left hand tool

Application tips

Face grooving methods

Depending on application, there are a few different strategies to consider when face grooving.


Learn more about how to apply roughing with axial feed, roughing with side turning, finishing and how to machine deep grooves, among other important considerations.

Precision coolant

Use face grooving tools with precision coolant supply even if the maximum coolant pressure in your machine is low, 7‒10 bar (102‒145 PSI).


Precision coolant improves chip evacuation and decreases risk for chip jamming in the groove.


Use as high coolant pressure as possible, up to 80 bar (1160 PSI), to achieve better chip control and chip evacuation.

Non-linear tool path profiling

Non-linear tool path profiling uses the whole front edge line of the insert and continuously changes the contact point between insert and material​. Use the method for optimized chip control, even cutting wear, and to avoid built-in tensions.​

  • -TF geometry works excellent for grooving with axial and side feed in general applications
  • Ground -GF geometry provides good accuracy and repeatability of the groove. The main application is grooving with axial feed. -GF can be used for finishing with side feed, but in general it is not recommended for side turning
  • -RM geometry is made for profiling and works well with both axial and side feed. Full width grooving with axial feed is not recommended for round inserts
