Grooving tools for light ring machining


We have launched a new grooving system, including an insert (X61) and toolholder (P61) for light machining, specifically the external and internal turning of lock rings and sealing rings.  


Widely used in the bearings and automotive industry, lock rings – also known as circlips – and sealing rings require highly durable and accurate tools due to the small dimensions involved.   
The new insert offers deeper grooves with widths up to 1.85mm and is available in both single and doubled-edge designs. Its positive geometry reduces cutting forces and temperature generated, meaning less power and stress on the workpiece, tool and machine.  
Available in the new G8330 grade, the X61 includes a negative T-land to improve cutting edge strength and reliability, making it suitable for smooth machining of steel, stainless steel and cast-iron.   
New toolholders are included as part of the launch to support internal and external grooving. Designated P61, the range offers a productive solution for finishing operations on small workpieces.
