Insert selection for external turning

Correct choices reduces cost

The huge combination of geometries such as triangular, square, size, thickness, corner radii and chip breakiers produces many different types of inserts. This makes insert selection as important a consideration as the choice of tool material, method, workpiece material and cutting conditions. Selecting the optimum type of insert increases working efficiency and reduces machining costs.
