TungModularSystem Grooving and Parting Tools

Tungaloy enhances usefulness of TungModularSystem, a modular-style grooving and parting tool system with through-coolant feature. 

TungModularSystem features exchangeable modular blades that enable a wide range of tool combinations with minimum tool investment and inventory. Its secure insert clamping design and capability for high-pressure through-coolant supply promotes long insert life and effective chip control, both of which are vital in efficient grooving operations. The modular tool system streamlines tool changeover inside the machine, reducing machine downtime and tool inventory costs compared to standard monoblock shank holders.

This expansion to TungModularSystem includes modular cutting heads with a size C3 TungCap connection, Tungaloy’s Polygon Shank Coupling series for accurate indexing and repeatability, as well as square shank holders with 90° blade orientation which is ideal for grooving large components on vertical turning lathes. In addition, new modular blades are added to the standard line to accommodate TungCut grooving inserts with 2 mm to 6 mm grooving widths in a rich lineup of geometries and grades as well as economical and productive four-cornered TetraForce-Cut and TetraMini-Cut inserts. All these additions are capable of using CHP, a high-pressure through-coolant supply for effective chip control.

Adds new modular blades accommodate universal TungCut inserts, as well as four-cornered TetraForce-Cut and TetraMini-Cut inserts

Related Glossary Terms

  • grooving


    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.

  • parting


    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.

  • shank


    Main body of a tool; the portion of a drill or similar end-held tool that fits into a collet, chuck or similar mounting device.

  • turning


    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.
