Sandvik Coromant claims its CoroCut QF tooling has been developed specifically for machining deep and narrow face grooves. The company notes that the insert is tilted for extra stability, while a slit design ensures the correct clamping force is applied. Special rails at the top, bottom and back of the insert are said to minimise insert movement.
Additional features of this tooling include a new version of the axial-mounting CoroTurn SL head. The company says the use of SL heads means customers can utilise CoroCut QF on damped silent tools, boring bars for internal face grooving with increased accessibility to difficult-to-reach features. The tooling will be launched in cutting widths of 3 and 4mm, four grades (GC1105, GC1125, GC1135 and GC1145) with -TF geometry for deep face grooving.
