Internal grooving and hook tools from Floyd

Floyd Automatic Tooling now supplies the ECO-Line of internal grooving and hook tools for face grooving operations, developed by Applitec Swiss Tooling to meet the demands of manufacturers using sliding head turning centres to produce small and complex parts.

Applitec has developed the ECO-Line to include an internal grooving insert, the 261Ri and 261Li type of right and left hand inserts. With two cutting edges per insert, the cutting tools are available in widths of 0.8, 1, 1.2, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3 and 3.2 mm with a cutting length of 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6 and 6.5 mm. The insert enables the end user to conduct face grooving, internal grooving, threading, internal threading and general turning operations, with the inserts also having the option of square end, radius, angled for chamfering or a 60° point for threading operations. Tool holders can be acquired with a square or round shank and a number of clearance forms for numerous machining procedures. All cutting tools in the range incorporate Applitec's grooved insert clamping system. The system has teeth on the cutting tool and the insert that both mesh to prevent insert movement, hence when screwed in place the system provides rigid and robust machining.
