Increasing feed rates by using wiper inserts is one of the most effective ways of improving turning productivity in high feed machining applications.
Sandvik Coromant supplies a wide variety of wiper inserts in both negative and positive insert styles. The unique corner radius design of these components allows for increased feeds without affecting the surface finish of a product.
Since feed is the main influence on the time taken to perform a turning operation, the use of wiper inserts can dramatically reduce the amount of cutting time required for each component.
Wiper inserts also provide an excellent surface finish, eliminating the need for many grinding operations and delivering improved component quality and roundness.
Advantages of using Sandvik Coromant wiper inserts include:
- improved machining economy
- excellent surface finishes on components
- undisturbed production
- less need for supervision; and
- reduced inventory.
