Sandvik Coromant launched CoroCut QI, a range of internal and face grooving inserts designed for smaller diameters.
CoroCut QI provides a comprehensive selection of optimized tools for numerous parting and grooving applications, designed specifically for smaller diameters. All inserts fit both internal and face grooving tool holders, making it easier for users to select the right tool.
CoroCut QI is divided into internal grooving and face grooving application areas, and is an upgrade of the T-max Q-Cut 151.3 program. The design allows for greater chip control, a 10 per cent productivity increase, 20 per cent improved tool life aided by tighter edge-rounding tolerances and internal coolant for both internal and face grooving tools.
Key features of the CoroCut QI include a tip seat angle for lighter cutting action and cutting forces that aid vibration-free machining, a rail insert seat for a stable insert position.
The insert geometries include -GF, a ground sharp insert for internal grooving, -TF with direct pressed geometry for face grooving and internal grooving and turning, and -RM, for non-linear turning such as internal and face profiling.
