In these ever changing times, finding a dedicated solution is not always efficient and engineers are repeatedly looking at quicker ways to improve production. Utilising a synergy of innovative chip breaker geometries and coatings; enabled by advancements in the latest technology in how to apply them, and matching a suitable carbide substrate was the answer when Mitsubishi Materials developed the latest turning inserts, UE6105 with MP chipbreaker.
Increasingly complex components are seen more often on machine tools in everyday production and this complexity places large demands on the tools needed for efficient manufacturing. In addition, greater emphasis is also being placed on inventory levels, creating the need for tools to be as versatile as possible, especially in smaller machine shops where varied batch quantities of components negates the need to find the absolute optimum cutting conditions due to the short production run. Therefore, it’s important to have tools that can be relied upon to be cost effective, reduce set up time and be versatile whilst maintaining good levels of productivity and reduce stocks of cutting tools in quick turn around situations.
