Sumitomo Electrical Carbide AC8000P have made available a series of three grades for steel turning to meet a range of application requirements. They feature an Absotech platinum Chemical Vapour Deposition coating for longer tool life and an overall cost reduction in steel cutting.
The AC8015P grade offers good wear resistance during high-speed, high-efficiency steel cutting.
Designed to be reliable during general purpose steel cutting, the AC8025P grade’s special surface treatment results in improved tool surface smoothness and increased adhesion and chipping resistance.
Finally, the AC8035P grade provides stability during interrupted steel cutting. Its surface treatment reduces residual tensile stress in the coating for increased fracture resistance.
