The customer had a poorly performing machine. When processing high-alloy steel, the machine was repeatedly switched off due to the excessive forces. The machining time was also 20 min / bore at ø 90.5 mm. By using our XBMX inserts, the cutting forces could be significantly reduced. Thanks to the optimal coordination of our application technician on site, the machining time was also reduced to 5 minutes per hole.
With our new sintered indexable inserts, we can also enable our customers with low-performance machines to process large diameters reliably.
