Big job, big chips. With the breakthrough Ingersoll insert, AWC turns big valve bonnets using depths of cut of nearly 0.33 inch. Free-cutting tool geometry reduces cutting forces to make it possible.
Heavy turning of “gummy” metals usually forces you to into a triage dilemma: You must choose among cycle time or chip control or tool life, but you won’t get all three at once. You won’t even get two out of the three. Cutting deeper improves chip control and speeds up the operation but raises the risk of rupturing the tool at any moment. Cutting shallower may prevent tool rupture, but it slows down the operation, requires more passes and can create ...
