Tool-Flo presents FloCut, a multifunctional system for both external and internal applications. Its unique locking system yields increased stability, critical for side turning applications.
Additionally, the molded chip control geometries ensure optimal finishes on machined surfaces, while Tool-Flo’s premium coatings ensure extended tool life. With a wide array of configurations for face grooving, deep grooving, side turning and parting applications, the FloCut system is also extremely versatile. Featuring holders that range from 0.500" to 1.250" (12 mm to 32 mm).

Machining grooves and shallow channels. Example: grooving ball-bearing raceways. Typically performed by tools that are capable of light cuts at high feed rates. Imparts high-quality finish.
When used in lathe or screw-machine operations, this process separates a completed part from chuck-held or collet-fed stock by means of a very narrow, flat-end cutting, or parting, tool.
Workpiece is held in a chuck, mounted on a face plate or secured between centers and rotated while a cutting tool, normally a single-point tool, is fed into it along its periphery or across its end or face. Takes the form of straight turning (cutting along the periphery of the workpiece); taper turning (creating a taper); step turning (turning different-size diameters on the same work); chamfering (beveling an edge or shoulder); facing (cutting on an end); turning threads (usually external but can be internal); roughing (high-volume metal removal); and finishing (final light cuts). Performed on lathes, turning centers, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and similar machines.
