Tungaloy enhances usefulness of TungModularSystem, a modular-style grooving and parting tool system with through-coolant feature. It features exchangeable modular blades that enable a wide range of tool combinations with minimum tool investment and inventory. The modular tool system streamlines tool changeover inside the machine, reducing machine downtime and tool inventory costs compared to standard monoblock shank holders.

This expansion to TungModularSystem includes modular cutting heads with a size C3 TungCap connection, Tungaloy’s Polygon Shank Coupling series for accurate indexing and repeatability, as well as square shank holders with 90° blade orientation which is ideal for grooving large components on vertical turning lathes. In addition, new modular blades are added to the standard line to accommodate TungCut grooving inserts with 2mm to 6mm grooving widths in a rich lineup of geometries and grades as well as economical and productive 4-cornered TetraForce-Cut and TetraMini-Cut inserts. All these additions are capable of using CHP, a high pressure through-coolant supply for effective chip control.
