TetraForceCut – Axle Tube – AH725


Longer tool life
- The conventional tool lacks cutting edge strength, resulting in fracture and short tool life. TCM chipbreaker with strong cutting edge geometry delivers good fracture resistance in parting off. Combining the chipbreaker with AH725 which is well balanced between wear and fracture resistance, TetraForceCut prevents fracture and triples tool life.
