Characteristics of cutting inserts

Cutting inserts have several cutting edges and can be used on a variety of work piece materials. Accurate bores with full radius and exact positioning can be achieved. Even threads can be milled with an appropriate insert. Cutting inserts are held into the insert seat with a screw or clamp.

Lothmann sources carbide cutting inserts from a variety of reputable manufacturers, for example Sandvik. Lothmann also produces or alters special inserts to individual customer requirements, so specific grooving, boring, turning and milling of materials can be achieved. Our custom tools use a variety of cutting inserts: sintered and coated carbide inserts for example are used to machine steel and cast iron. Precision ground inserts with chip breaker groove and PCD-tipped inserts are used to machine Aluminum.

Modern inserts are far less prone to heat-cracks; a fine grain or micro grain structure of the sintered inserts assures that. Inserts used in machining steel and tough or abrasive materials are coated with various modern multi-layer coatings tailored for different materials and applications. Selecting the right insert grade and coating assures machining consistency and efficiency, as well as extended tool life.
