Characteristics and usage of our wheels
One of our main focus areas are grinding wheels for production of Indexable Inserts.
Indexable insert is a cutting tool that is fixed in a tool holder and used for machining various materials, e.g. steel, wood, plastics, aluminum, etc. Indexable inserts can be used for all kinds of cutting applications – milling, turning, hole-making and threading. Majority of indexable inserts can be rotated to benefit from multiple (up to 8) cutting edges.
Indexable Inserts are made mainly by sintering metalic materials. Basic materials used for production of indexable inserts are tungsten carbides, cermets, technical ceramics and super-hard materials Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) and Polycrystalline CBN (PCBN).
Characteristics of the insert are influenced by its chemical composition. However, all inserts would be useless without correct shape / geometry. Geometry of an insert affects characted and performance of the machining process.
