Arlington Heights, Illinois – Tungaloy America Inc. adds PVD-coated grade AH8015 in several geometry types to its MiniForce-Turn series for machining heat-resistant superalloys, steel, and stainless steel.

The MiniForce-Turn line of turning tools feature an innovative double-sided positive insert and unique seat interface for secure location, which is as free cutting as standard single-sided positive inserts with maximum stability and tool economy.

Intended primarily for machining heat-resistant superalloys, the new PVD-coated grade AH8015 also excels in steel and stainless-steel machining with a balanced resistance to wear and chipping.

AH8015 is offered in the -TS, -SS, and -TSW style chipbreakers on 6-cornered WXGU0403 inserts and 4-cornered DXGU0703 inserts to provide longer and more predictable tool life over existing grades in a wide range of applications and materials.
