The VPGT insert issued by the ISO range and the different tool holders offered by Bimu deliver superlative machining characteristics as well as a diverse range of possible applications, one example being the ability to machine as a back (tailstock) operation. This entire package comes with a very attractive price tag.
Description of the insert
The specially designed cutting angles (11° stock removal) and the special swarf breaking feature on both working edges make the VPGT Bimu insert an ideal tool for bar-turning work. As a standard, the user can obtain various different versions of this VPGT insert:
- without radius (for finishing operations)
- with a radius of 0.08 mm (to extend tool life)
- with a radius of 0.2 mm (eminently suited to roughing operations)
A multi-purpose insert
Part of the ISO range, the VPGT insert is ideally suited to all sliding head machines and can be mounted on tool holders with sections ranging from 7×7 to 20×20 mm. Since the insert is able to remove stock in such a versatile manner, it can be used in 3 directions, meaning that 2 distinct applications are then possible:
- Front turning.
- A plunging turn during a back-turning operation.
