Tungaloy’s TungCut series of grooving and parting tools now offers TungFeed-Blade, an extremely rigid modular blade series for grooving and parting applications.

The latest grooving and parting tool system consists of a triangular CHGP style modular blade with three insert pockets which holds a CHTBR/L robust style tool block. The modular blade incorporates an insert support design that provides vibration free grooving and parting. The unique triangular blade configuration has three insert pockets allowing the blade to be rotated to a new pocket up to three times without setup. This saves tool costs and setup time for customers. 

Intended for high feed grooving and parting, the TungFeed-Blade system extends insert life, improves surface finish, and part straightness, while significantly reducing cycle time.
