Cost-effective roughing and semi-finish machining with innovative tangential indexable inserts

(PresseBox) (Aalen, ) MAPAL has developed a new generation of tangential indexable inserts for roughing and semi-finishing operations. The sintered CTMQ inserts with four cutting edges are particularly cost-effective in applications with larger admissible tolerances, as is generally the case for roughing. Tailored in the first step to the machining of steel and cast iron, the indexable inserts have innovative coatings developed on MAPAL‘s in-house coating line. The tangential indexable inserts are classified in the tolerance class M, but achieve far better results for both the inside diameter and the plate thickness.

The right quality for every application
The new CTMQ tangential indexable inserts are an optimum complement to the high precision CTHQ inserts. These ground precision inserts of tolerance class H are intended for finish-machining and for demanding semi-finishing. The MAPAL portfolio of tangential indexable inserts thus offers the right insert for every demand with respect to precision and costs, and hence a cost-effective and reliable machining solution.

The sintered tangential indexable inserts with four cutting edges are particularly cost-effective in roughing and semi-finishing applications.
