Superturnz, a multi-directional turning system that uses the front and back cutting edge of a four-corner insert, is now available from Ingersoll.

Ingersoll now offers Superturnz, a multi-directional turning system that uses the front and back cutting edge of a four-corner insert. According to the company, it is an alternative to conventional turning, where 80- and 35-degree corner inserts are fed in the same direction.

Superturnz uses all four directions available on a conventional two-axis lathe (+Z, -Z, +X and -X) to maximize material removal.  The double-sided positive SuperTurnZ inserts have the same axial and radial rake angle and capability as standard ISO positive inserts, allowing for low cutting forces, but with additional cutting edges and higher feed rate capabilities, according to Ingersoll.
