TurnTen-Feed | Efficiency and Economy in Medium-Heavy Turning

Published Date
July 23, 2019 - 10:15:am

Components for the aerospace, power and heavy equipment sectors require high material removal rates and extended machining hours. These expensive components require high machining reliability and tool life predictability. TurnTen-Feed provides that tool reliability and machining efficiency in medium-heavy turning. The insert features 10 cost-efficient cutting edges. It’s double-sided and securely mounted with a dovetail clamping system, ensuring high reliability and stability. The MNW chipbreaker ensures smooth chip flow, while the built-in, cutting-edge wiper geometry allows high feed motion of up to 0.079" (2 mm) per rev to be applied for accelerated machining. Two types of holders are available and can accommodate either type of insert.

Related Glossary Terms

  • chipbreaker


    Groove or other tool geometry that breaks chips into small fragments as they come off the workpiece. Designed to prevent chips from becoming so long that they are difficult to control, catch in turning parts and cause safety problems.

  • feed


    Rate of change of position of the tool as a whole, relative to the workpiece while cutting.

  • 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.

  • wiper


    Metal-removing edge on the face of a cutter that travels in a plane perpendicular to the axis. It is the edge that sweeps the machined surface. The flat should be as wide as the feed per revolution of the cutter. This allows any given insert to wipe the entire workpiece surface and impart a fine surface finish at a high feed rate.
