T515 – Automotive Parts – T515


Extended tool life
- In roughing of FCD400, tool life of the competitor is short as flank wear is increased during machining. Compared to the competitor, T515 extends tool life by 2.5 times due to Al2O3 layer that is thicker than the conventional coating.
Increased productivity
- Extended tool life with T515 leads to the increase in productivity.
