Secure parting and grooving operations with SX
Secure and precise parting and grooving processes
In system SX the insert is self-clamping and fixed with maximum clamping force on the parallel insert seating faces. This prevents the insert from shifting from its position and guarantees a very precise positioning of the cutting edge. The excellent stability makes longitudinal turning possible.
Low downtime thanks to quick insert change
Active clamping of the insert ensures both easy handling and a quick insert change. In this way downtimes are kept at a minimum.
- Active clamping with fixed stop
- Modular parting and grooving system, block/blade solution, monoblock tool
- Inserts for parting and grooving with full radius in cutting widths from 2 to 6 mm.
Particularly suited for materials, such as:
- Stainless steel
- Cast iron
- Non-ferrous metals and non metals
- Parting and grooving
- Longitudinal turning
The system SX showed maximum performance when machining a steel motor shaft. Compared to competitors, applying the SX system the customer was able to produce 40% more parts per cutting edge with an 8% higher cutting speed.
