A 9° declining major cutting edge with a reinforcing chamfer and a 24° positive entry to the chip former, achieve excellent chip control especially on difficult to cut materials. The minor cutting edges with 16° positive entry angle achieve efficient profile turning creating clean surfaces.
Although the insert has been developed for universal cutting and turning, parting off tests with KM TILOX proved excellent tool life on stainless steels, e.g. 1.4404 (X2 CrNiMo1810). Therefore the insert is also recommmended for stainless steel parting off.
The best tool life on parting off hexagon material 1.4571 Ø 38 has been 409 pcs so far. This could be increased to an amazing 678 pcs with the same speeds.
