WNT (UK) has brought out the HCX1125 steel-turning grade, which can increase tool life by 10 fold.

It features WNT’s Mastertool Dragonskin coating system, which, when combined with the grade development, improves tool life.

Tony Pennington, managing director of WNT, said: ‘Ten-times existing tool life is not uncommon, and with this we are then able to work with customers to find the optimum balance between tool life and productivity in order to generate maximum cost benefit for the customer.’ WNT is asking customers to leave feeds and speeds exactly as they are and simply put the test insert, available free of charge from WNT, into the machine.

WNT is confident of an immediate increase in tool life.

Typically, customers are witnessing a five-fold increase in tool life and WNT’s team of skilled and experienced sales engineers has helped to increase this figure to as much as ten times.

The new grade operates in the ISO P25 range.

Every aspect of the carbide and coating process was reviewed and the culmination is a range of inserts, in a variety of standard ISO shapes that will deliver major improvements across the steel-cutting application area.
