FIX8 is the heavy-duty turning solution with eight cutting edges per insert.
Ideal for medium machining and roughing with lowest cost per edge.
A unique clamping system pulls the insert into the pocket seat, enabling the insert to withstand large cutting forces and vibrations. Large depth of cut (up to 12mm) and feed rate (up to 1.4mm) capabilities ensure highest possible metal removal rates in steel, cast iron, and stainless steels.
With 15% less cutting forces, FIX8 is also well suited for low horsepower lathes.
The tangential design increases the amount of carbide between the workpiece and the tool holder, allowing the system to take higher loads. A carbide shim protects the pocket against deformation and ensures process safety.
