Chip Breaking Effect

Improve chip control in all grooving, cut-off, and multi-directional turning applications.

Triple-V Design

1. V-Back Design - Unsurpassed grooving, cut-off, and multi-directional, turning load stability.

2. Top and Bottom-V - Precise and secure insert positioning for increased rigidity and dimensional accuracy.

Fan Effect

Directs coolant across the top of the insert precisely to the cutting zone underneath the chip and controls temperature.
