TaeguTec now presents its uniquely shaped HB Chipbreaker that has been specially developed to deliver low cutting forces when conducting rough and medium machining. The new insert is ideal for automotive component production and general engineering applications where it will drastically improve productivity. With its optimized configuration, the HB Chipbreaker gives stable machining performance on medium and rough turning applications. The stabilized lever strength and low cutting force is credit to the geometry that will achieve steady chip evacuation and prolonged tool life. When compared to the existing double-sided insert and lever type holder, the HB inserts and the exclusive holder will minimize the cutting load and extend tool life.
