Applitec’s new internal grooving and hook tools for face-grooving operations have been developed for turned-part manufacturers using sliding-head turning centres to produce small and complex parts.

The Eco-Line programme enables the end user to conduct face grooving, internal grooving, threading, internal threading and general turning operations.

It includes a new internal grooving insert, designated the 261Ri and 261Li right- and left-hand inserts, which can be used on the new grooving insert tool holders.

The tool holders are available with a variety of options to meet the needs of manufacturers producing intricate components at high production levels.

The tool holders can be acquired with a square or round shank, with a number of clearance forms for numerous machining procedures.

All cutting tools in the range incorporate Applitec’s grooved insert clamping system, which has teeth on the cutting tool and the insert that mesh to prevent insert movement.

When screwed in place, the system guarantees rigid and robust machining, resulting in high surface finishes and a long tool life.

With two cutting edges per insert, the cutting tools are available in widths of 0.8, 1, 1.2, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3 and 3.2mm, with a cutting length of 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6 and 6.5mm.

The inserts also provide the option of square end, radius, angled for chamfering or a 60deg point for threading operations.
