Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, Metalworking Solutions Company (President – Shinichi Nakamura, Headquarters: Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) has added a new insert for machining aluminium alloys to the GY series grooving system.
The existing GY series has received a favorable reception as a grooving system that has a wide selection of holders and inserts available for diverse grooving applications, such as external, internal and face grooving.
This new insert for aluminium alloy machining enables GY series to expand its coverage over a wider range of workpiece materials and applications.
1. An ideal small chip shape is formed by narrowing the width of the chip breaker.
2. The large rake angle realises low cutting resistance.
3. The sharp cutting edge improves welding resistance.
