ATI Stellram Launches New Turning Geometry

March 22, 2010
Available in hard-wearing grades that allow high-speed cutting on difficult to machine materials.
The Stellram® 1B insert cuts at high speed on difficult-to-machine materials, as well as various steels.

A versatile new turning geometry for finish-turning of components manufactured from steel to the most difficult-to-machine materials, such as high-temperature alloys, has been launched by ATI Stellram.

The Stellram® 1B insert is available in a choice of hard-wearing grades, including SP0819, which is designed for high cutting speeds on difficult-to-machine materials; and Nitro-Lok® coated NL37, designed for high cutting speeds in unalloyed and alloyed steels. These grade and coating technologies combined with this unique geometry, not only boost productivity but also improve component integrity.

1B Geometry features a precisely controlled cutting edge and nose profile, designed so that material can be removed cleanly and efficiently, leaving a superior surface finish at varying depths of cut and feed rates.

According to ATI Stellram, the 1B geometry has been designed in combination with proven grades and coatings to provide high resistance to heat and edge breakdown, resulting in little to no loss in tool life while still increasing productivity.
