Sandvik Coromant (Fair Lawn, NJ) has launched a new, light cutting insert for its CoroMill 170 precision gear milling cutter. The -PL geometry flank insert reduces cutting forces, making it the best option for smaller gear milling machines, giving users the option to reduce power consumption or run for faster and longer, says the company. The insert features a positive chip breaker that minimizes unwanted cutting forces and vibration to help produce less heat in the cutting zone and prolong insert life. Taking advantage of Sandvik Coromant’s grade GC1030, the technical features of the new insert support greater cutting stability and in turn allow higher cutting speeds.
