Tungaloy Corporation has announced an expansion of the AH8000 series for heat-resistant alloy turning. The new PVD grade, the AH8000 series, was engineered specifically for turning heat-resistant alloys. Using the world’s first nano-multi-layered AlTiN coating with high Al content, the new grade reduces notch wear, crater wear, and built-up edge in machining heat-resistant alloys. The two grades include AH8015, the first choice grade for well-balanced wear and fracture resistance; and AH8005, the grade with high hardness for strong wear resistance. These two grades are treated with PremiumTec: Tungaloy’s special surface treatment technology, which adds a highly polished cutting surface for extra stability and longer tool life.
With this new addition of a positive insert line, the AH8000 series can now cover a wider application range in heat-resistant alloy turning, and in combination with the existing negative insert line, provide customers with a drastic increase in productivity.
The AH8000 series features nano-multi-layered AlTiN coating with high Al content and provides incredible wear and fracture resistance in heat-resistant alloy turning.
PS, PSS, and PSF chipbreakers are available for positive inserts as well as All-round chipbreaker to complement.
