PrimeTurning is a cutting methodology that uses high-performance CoroTurn Prime inserts. When using the PrimeTurning technique, the tool enters the workpiece at the chuck and removes material as it moves towards the end of the component, away from the chuck. This enables use of a small entering angle and more aggressive cutting parameters.
For certain applications, PrimeTurning can help you increase productivity in excess of 50%, compared to using conventional techniques and inserts. Additionally, it can the extend the tool life by 2 times.
