Multidirectional Turning Tool System

Tungaloy offers AddMultiTurn, a new turning tool concept with unique insert and toolholder geometries that allow multidirectional turning for maximum productivity and cost efficiency, according to the company.

AddMultiTurn provides the flexibility for OD, face and profile turning operations in multiple directions-including high-feedback (pull) turning method-allowing toolpaths that turn in the opposite direction of conventional turning process at higher feeds.

"Multidirectional turning optimizes the toolpaths by eliminating air cutting times, providing more productivity than conventional turning methods," said a company spokesperson. "The shapes of the AddMultiTurn inserts enable the user to achieve a much smaller entry angle and thinner chips for higher machining efficiency, which spreads load and heat over a longer cutting edge length, providing extended insert tool life."

AddMultiTurn uses two styles of inserts depending on the application, both of which are in an economical double-sided design with six total cutting edges: 6C-TOMG..TM inserts with 80° nose angle are designed for medium to rough turning, and 6V-TOMG..TSF inserts with 35° nose angle are suited for finish turning. "Both inserts allow back (pull) turning method, contributing to higher productivity and reduced machining costs, compared with conventional ISO turning inserts," said the spokesperson. AddMultiTurn inserts can also be used for push turning just as with ISO turning inserts, promoting flexibility in a range of turning applications.

A Y-PRISM safe lock design provides a rail on the shim and matching slots on the insert, offering tight interlocking and secure clamping of the insert during high productive multidirectional turning.
