The multi- edge concept makes it suitable for large batch production and flexible transfer. A shor t (0.6- mm/0.024"), parallel land is designed to ensure good surface finish. The large screws ease han- dling, while the insert position and the heptagonal shape ensure secure clamping for reliabilit y. Internal coolant is available for cutters ranging from 63 to 160 mm (2.5" to 6.0").

The grades are available with the company's UD4, UA4, UF4 and RD4 geometries, as well as its GD3 and CE4 plunge-grooving and parting geometries. They also include wear-resistant materials that are said to boost cutting parameters while maintaining or improving tool life. The grades' thicker coating features aluminum oxide with a microstructure designed to reduce friction for resisting crater wear and enhancing cutting speeds. A silver flank face enables wear detection and full cutting-edge usage. A mechan- ical post-treatment that enhances toughness via compressive stresses boosts load capacity and metal removal rates by reducing the chance of chipping on the cutting edge. WKP13S is designed to deliver wear resistance
