SANDVIK Coromant has released wiper inserts for cemented carbide, cermet, ceramics, cubic boron nitride (CBN) and for Coromant U-drills. The inserts improve machining productivity by increasing the feed rate.
The T-Max P programme will be further extended with wiper inserts in smaller sizes as well as inserts in CBN and CB7015, which are suitable for turning case hardened steels.
The shape of the inserts sometimes requires different programming techniques, for example when profiling. The programming of wiper inserts for finish turning will be incorporated in the EdgeCAM suite of CAM solutions. This will simplify the use of wiper inserts in copying operations, allowing complete dimensional control for the users and providing improvements in productivity.
