Taegutec has extended the range of the Rhinogroove family by adding 4 and 5mm inserts to the current 2 and 3mm line. Further, single-ended “C” and “J” chip breaker type inserts for deep machining are now available in 2, 3, 4 and 5mm sizes.
The Rhinogroove is an enhanced insert with an overall reduced length developed for efficiency in shallow depth of cut parting and grooving machining.
Its centre of gravity promotes better stability while the vibration during machining is minimised by the optimised holder pocket design that enables powerful clamping of the insert. Since vibration is the single greatest influence on tool life in parting and grooving, the Rhinogroove claims to offer improved stability and longer tool life due to minimised vibration during machining.
The line comes in C and J type chip breakers, which are available as standard items in either 2 or 3mm insert widths. The line is also available in a range of grades – TT9080, TT7220, TT8020 – to machine several types of materials.
Another addition are the SH type holders suitable for Swiss type automatic lathes, adding 3mm holders to the current 2mm insert seat size holders.
TC3020 and TC3030 grades now expanded to the RNGN 19 and 25 size inserts
Both the TC3020 and TC3030 grades – known for excellent, high-temperature alloys machining – have been expanded to include both the RNGN 19 and 25 size inserts.
The introduction of the TC3020 and TC3030 grades to the RNGN 19 and 25 size inserts enables reduced machining time and better productivity in deep depths of cut on high-temperature alloys as demanded by customers in industries such as aerospace.
The TC3020 is ideal for high-temperature alloys machining and runs in the same conditions as the whisker ceramic grade. The superior wear resistance is due to high chemical stability and it has better flank and notch wear resistance the company says.
The TC3020 has excellent high temperature strength and fracture toughness and is available for turning, milling and grooving applications.
The TC3030 is ideal for high-temperature alloys machining and tougher when compared to the whisker ceramic grade. The grade’s extreme toughness enables higher feed and heavier depth of cut machining. The TC3030 is suitable for scaling and roughing applications.
The TC3030 has excellent thermal shock resistance and thermal conductivity and available for turning, milling and grooving applications.
