Sandvik Coromant’s GC4325 coated cemented-carbide grade of steel turning inserts provides higher potential for increased cutting speeds and longer, more predictable tool life with high reliability, the company says. Through its ability to retain an intact edge line, the grade helps users maintain process security and resist holding back on cutting-data levels.
The insert’s substrate and coating have been developed to withstand high temperatures, reducing excessive wear. According to the company, the grade is capable of maintaining the insert edge line at the higher temperatures, which translates into higher cutting speeds with added process security through more predictable and longer tool life. According to the company, the grade can increase productivity by an average of 30 percent.
