The new MicroTurn eLine MTEE is an optimised universal boring tool that is less expensive than Ifanger’s existing MTEC or MTEN tools and significantly more cost-effective than solutions from alternate vendors.

Available as a right-handed boring tool with seven variants, the universal inserts are the perfect solution for small bore machining starting from Ø1.80mm bore (Ifanger also offer solutions down to Ø0.30mm in their main program).

With the new eLine MTEE, the series incorporates a positive cut 8° rake angle and a short neck length for maximum rigidity and stability. Additionally, this cost-effective line is 25% less expensive than existing tools in the Ifanger MicroTurn boring series.

From a dimensional perspective, the new MTEE line is available with a 4 or 6mm diameter shank with an overall length of 31 or 43mm. With a neck length from 5 to 19.5mm and corner radii from 0.05mm to 0.15mm. The MTEE Series inserts are currently available uncoated, which retains edge sharpness and precision when machining certain materials, and with TiALN coating.

Complementing the MTEE line is the classic series of Ifanger boring inserts that incorporates the MTEC, MTEN, MTKE, MTKH boring and copying tools. For profiling applications, Ifanger has an extremely diverse range of geometries and coatings to support manufacturers with all their threading, grooving, chamfering and axial plunging requirements.

All inserts in the Ifanger MicroTurn eLine are supported by the MTHA tool holder and positional device for the rapid and precise changeover of tools. Sitting within the MTHA tool holder is the Ifanger MTHZ, MTHD and MTHS collet chuck, thrust collar and screw. The innovative and compact design ensures that end users can attain unsurpassed levels of precision, rigidity and repeatability when changing the inserts with the simple and accurate clamping design taking user friendliness to a new level.

Whilst the new MTEE line has been designed to cater for the majority of small boring applications with the most commonly used dimension ranges initially available; as experts in sliding head turning tools Floyd Automatic Tooling and Ifanger can customise this extensive range upon demand to ensure that the entire small boring demands of the industry are met.
