MiniForceTurn – Drum Clutch – NS9530


Extended tool life
- In internal turning of drum clutch parts, the competitor’s tool life ends after machining 250 pcs/corner as the machined dimensions vary due to increased flank wear. NS9530 with excellent wear resistance machines 300 pcs/corner that is 1.2 times more than the competitor.

Economical advantage
- By using the MiniForceTurn’s double-sided insert whose cutting force is as low as that of a positive insert, the number of cutting edges is twice that of the competitor, leading to 2.4 times increase in the number of machined pieces per insert.
