Lower ISO Turning Costs by 20%
T-Tank inserts from Ingersoll Cutting Tools retain the same or similar thickness of larger IC inserts for very stable, rigid clamping that is ideal for interrupted cuts.
Current trends in manufacturing feature work piece components with reduced stock conditions due to improved casting and forging technology. In these instances, depths of cut in rough turning are predominantly in the range of .040 in – .080 in per side, rendering conventional ISO turning inserts with .500 in long cutting edges inefficient due to their disproportionate size relative to the cutting depth.
In this modern machining environment, with a high focus on cost reduction, in Booth 1719 Ingersoll Cutting Tool Company (Rockford, IL) is pleased to launch T-Tank, a series of smaller, but robust, ISO turning inserts to meet the manufacturing industry’s need to reduce machining costs and increase competitiveness.
Smaller inserts are nothing new in the ISO turning world. The difference is that T-Tank inserts retain the same or similar thickness of larger IC inserts. The result is a strong, compact insert with the durability of a larger insert.
Here is a German demonstration of the T-Tank series inserts.
When combined with a new, multi-directional clamping system in the holder and insert screw hole, these inserts provide very stable, rigid clamping, making them an ideal option even in interrupted cuts. The result is excellent performance at a price 20 percent lower than comparable ½ in IC inserts.
T-Tank inserts feature 10 chip breakers designed for these “near net shape” material conditions, with CNMG, DNMG, SNMG and TNMG inserts available in 12 grades. This comprehensive offering of geometries and grades provides many options to improve chip-breaking, extend tool life and provide immediate cost savings in all materials. www.ingersoll-imc.com
