Having a wide range of chipbreaker geometries and substrates, the tool system can easily be adapted to the machining application and workpiece material.
The modular concept has been expanded so that various types of cartridge can be clamped using a single base holder. Internal coolant allows direct cooling at the contact zone to prolong tool life and improve chip removal from the groove. Coolant supply is via a transfer point in the base holder. The cartridges can also be used on older Horn holders, but without through coolant.
The axial holders are available in the following versions: LAK (left, external), RAK (right, external), LIK (left, internal) and RIK (right, internal). Maximum groove depth is 14 mm and widths range from 3 to 6 mm.
