NTK takes turning to the stratosphere with new Saturn Duo

Added to MTDCNC by NTK Cutting Tools on 01 May 2014

Face turning and grooving operations can now be conducted with greater precision and productivity levels with the new Saturn Duo turning line from NTK. The flexible new Saturn Duo line is available with gang type, front gang type and sleeve holder options to suit all types of turning centre.

Developed to generate improved tool rigidity, precision and economy, the new line has double sided inserts with two edges on each side and an optimised overhang and tool holder shape to enhance performance and surface finishes. The Saturn Duo is offered with an FGV type for face grooving whilst the new FBV has been created for face turning. The FGV range for grooving is suitable for machining at a minimum diameter of 6mm with groove widths available in 1, 1.5 and 2mm to offer an effective machining depth of up to 3mm. Manufactured from NTK's renowned TM4 grade with an optimal insert thickness of 2.38mm with corner radii of 0.05mm, the FGV inserts deliver stability, rigidity and a geometry that enhances these benefits with outstanding swarf clearance.

The corresponding tool holders for the FGV grooving line are offered in right and left hand variations for gang type toolposts with height and width ranging from 10, 12 and 16mm to suit all toolpost types with an overall length of 120mm. These dimensions are identical for the CH-FGV toolholder that works with front gang type tool stations. The third tool holder is the DS-FGV that provides a round tool shank with diameters of 16, 19, 20, 22 and 25.4mm. The tool holder shanks incorporate square flats for clamping the holder in 15, 18, 19, 21 and 24.5mm widths. The FGV line can machine groove depths up to 2mm at a feed rate of up to 0.04mm/rev depending upon the material being machined.

To deliver outstanding performance on face turning operations, Hemel Hempstead based NTK has introduced the new FBV line that can conduct longitudinal feed, slant machining, facing and cross feed turning for anything from rough to finish machining. For face machining efficiency with a minimum bore diameter of 8mm, the new FBV line provides exceptional performance levels. The FBV inserts that correspond with the FBV toolholder are ideal for cutting carbon and alloy steels, stainless steel, free cutting steels and non-ferrous materials.
Offering an effective machining depth up to 4mm with an edge radius of 0.05 or 0.15mm, the ISO inserts are designed to prolong tool life and productivity levels. These productivity levels exceed that of competitor products by running at cutting speeds up to 100m/min with feed rates up to 0.03mm/rev.
