Video: Turning in Multiple Directions with One Insert to Cut Metal Faster

Productivity is an incremental process, until a new technology comes along and introduces a step change. According to Sandvik Coromant, Prime Turning tools represent that step change by enabling the tool to cut in multiple directions.

In this video, John Winter, product manager at Sandvik Coromant, shows how multiple edges of one insert tool are used to make turning faster and more efficient. The multiple cutting edges also increase tool life.

Working with tools that can handle high metal removal rates and work in multiple materials can increase productivity, but it’s important to consider if the machine and workholding is up to the task.
