A new concept from Sandvik Coromant is set to provide significant performance benefits in profile machining, CoroTurn TR offers a more stable clamping and improved security via a robust T-rail interface between insert and holder.
Profiling operations place high pressures on the tool and conventional clamping designs often leave the insert open to movement during machining which reduces component tolerance and quality.
To combat this, the T-rail design uses horizontal and vertical rails to provide a strong support for the insert in the tool holder reducing insert movement leading to the production of high quality, close tolerance components.
Further stability can also be achieved via a long insert screw which reaches deep into the holder to clamp the insert firmly in place.
The two cutting edge design utilises optimised geometries and facilitates the requirements of good chip evacuation needed to offer more continuous uninterrupted machining.
The CoroTurn TR is designed for turning operations using V (35 ? ) and D (55 ? ) style inserts and is well suited to medium to finishing applications and the operational demands of modern multi-task machining.
