Tooling system for aluminium wheel machining

The tools, which are based on the tried and proven grooving and longitudinal turning system 229, are available as cutting inserts tipped with carbide and PCD. Furthermore, the portfolio is completed by the S29F system and a comprehensive range of ISO products, both of which are also available in PCD. Tool holders and cutting inserts for internal and external machining are included in the portfolio. With a cutting edge geometry that has been customised for machining wheels, the cutting inserts are able to reduce burr formation and the formation of build-up edges as well as increase tool life and dimensional accuracy in series production.
