Chip Control Insert for Small Diameter Boring in Demanding Materials

In keeping with our promise to remain on “The Cutting Edge”, SCT is proud to announce the very latest addition to the SCT Advantage Boring Bar System: The SCT Advantage Chip Control insert. 

As a precision tool manufacturer, SCT is aware of the challenges accompanied with boring applications in some of today’s demanding materials including:

  • high temperature alloys
  • low carbon steel 
  • stainless steel
  • chip packing
  • marred surface finishes
  • poor tool life 
  • premature tool holder failure 

The SCT Advantage Chip Control Inserts address these challenges head on to bring extra value and increased productivity to your demanding boring applications. A proprietary precision ground chip former and lapped surface finish coupled with a Sub micrograin carbide substrate and the latest in ALTiN coating technology provide the recipe for success. Available insert sizes include .156” IC 80 degree diamond and .160” and ¼” IC  60 degree triangle.          

When used in our proprietary SCT Advantage boring bar system, these inserts will dramatically improve performance in your small diameter boring applications.
