WNT’s range of Ultramini solid carbide grooving tools has been extended with axial and radial grooving tools and the addition of a high-pressure through-coolant facility.

The range of axial (face) grooving tools benefits from two integral coolant holes capable of accepting coolant pressure up to 100 bar.

Face grooves down to 3mm wide, at diameters over 16mm, can be cut up to 40mm deep, as the high-pressure coolant ensures that swarf is efficiently and reliably evacuated from the groove.

Axial grooving tools without through coolant are available down to 1mm in width.

the axial grooving range also uses a K10F TiAlN-coated carbide that has been developed with this type of application in mind.

A two-micron thick coating helps to achieve a sharp cutting edge geometry to reduce vibrating and minimise chatter, while extending the life of the cutting edge.

The Ultramini radial grooving tools can be also specified with through-tool coolant.

Available in groove widths from 1.0 to 3.0mm to cut grooves up to 30mm inside a bore, the tools also make use of the K10F TiAlN-coated carbide.

Both axial and radial tools are held in a steel body that features a fixed backstop, with the accuracy of the cutting tool being such that they repeat within microns, allowing tool changes to be completed quickly, with no need to alter the backstop or tool offset.
