DoTwist-Ball – Base Plate – AH3135


High productivity
The competitor’s insert was flat on its rake face, so the cutting force was high. Therefore, the productivity was low. DoTwist-Ball provided low cutting force due to positive rake angle and performed well in spite of its close-pitch cutter body.

Long tool life
Thanks to tough substrate and coating, AH3135 showed stable tool life even in wet condition.
