FixRTurn, New Series of Round Inserts for Exact Indexing with 6RM & 6RS Chipbreakers


Iwaki / Japan, 17. December 2015, Tungaloy Corporation is pleased to introduce FixRTurn, the new series for turning operations that features round inserts and toolholders to simplify exact indexing.

With the conventional round insert for turning, the insert bottom and the pocket seat of the toolholder are usually made flat and have no interlocking design, which makes accurate indexing difficult. Unpredictable insert life due to inconsistent indexing and re-using an already-used corner are the common mistakes among the operators. FixRTurn is the solution to these problems: the star-shaped cavity on the insert bottom corresponds with the protrusion on the pocket seat and realizes simple and consistent indexing. Screws and inserts are no need to be taken off from the toolholder when indexing, so there will be no risk of dropping and losing the screws and the inserts.

The new chipbreakers include 2 types: 6RM for general purpose; 6RS for low cutting force. On the insert top surface are the index numbers shown to identify which corner to use and prevent re-setting and re-using an already-used corner on the insert.

The insert grades are T9115 & T9125 in CVD grade and NS9530 in cermet grade, which cover from roughing to finishing, providing customers with high productivity and efficiency in a wide range of turning applications.

Main features:

  • Round inserts for easy and exact indexing due to the connection of the cavity on the insert bottom with the protrusion on the pocket seat of the toolholder
  • The chipbreakers, 6RM for general purpose and 6RS for low cutting force, are applicable for various turning operations.
  • T9115 & T9125 in CVD grade and NS9530 in cermet grade cover from roughing to finishing.
