New PVD-Coated Grade AH8015 of Tungaloy’s MiniForce-Turn Boosts Productivity for ISO S Materials

Tungaloy adds PVD-coated grade AH8015 in several geometry types to its MiniForce-Turn series for machining heat-resistant superalloys, steel, and stainless steel.

MiniForce-Turn is a successful line of turning tools that feature an innovative double-sided positive insert and unique seat interface for secure location, which is as free cutting as standard single-sided positive inserts with maximum stability and tool economy.

Intended primarily for machining heat-resistant superalloys, the new PVD-coated grade AH8015 also exhibits excellent performance in steel and stainless steel machining with a balanced resistance to wear and chipping.

AH8015 is offered in the -TS, -SS, and -TSW style chipbreakers on 6-cornered WXGU0403 inserts and 4-cornered DXGU0703 inserts to provide longer and more predictable tool life over existing grades in a wide range of applications and materials.

At a Glance:

  • Innovative double-sided positive inserts provides free cutting which is no different from standard positive inserts
  • Exceptional resistance to wear and chipping for increased productivity
  • Innovative seat interface for secure insert retention and machining stability
