TurboForm® Inserts for Precision Finishing
Product Announcement from Greenleaf Corporation
Greenleaf’s TurboForm® carbide inserts with built-in chip control are ideal for precision finishing of thin wall sections. The high, positive-rake cutting edges of these precision-ground, negative-style inserts minimize tool deflection for a truly superior and accurate surface finish.
Greenleaf’s TurboForm® inserts are effective for finishing a variety of materials, including nickel alloys such as Inconel, Hastelloy, Waspaloy, Rene, et. al. as well as stainless steels and titanium. These inserts are available in three carbide grades: GA5026, G-920 and G-925. All three of these grades bring high wear resistance to high-speed machining of abrasive and difficult-to-machine materials.
GA5026 is a high-speed carbide grade developed for turning nickel- and cobalt-based super alloys, stainless steels, and refractory metals. The advanced MT-CVD coating over a micro-grain substrate offers high wear resistance. GA5026 has exceptional resistance to the notching and deformation common to machining high-strength materials. This grade should be applied at high speeds and light feeds in turning and selected milling applications.
G-920 is a PVD-coated carbide grade for turning and milling high-strength materials such as high-temp alloys, titanium and stainless steel. G-920 is also an excellent grade for aluminum and refractory metals. This grade has the resistance to deformation and notching required for higher speeds.
G-925 is a multi-layer, PVD-coated carbide grade specifically designed for machining abrasive and difficult-to-machine materials. Typical applications include high-temp alloys, titanium and other refractory materials, stainless steel, and many cast irons. G-925 exhibits excellent resistance to notching and deformation. It should be applied at moderate to high speeds and moderate feeds.
