Rhombic (V) 35° Turning Inserts

Rhombic (V) 35° Turning Inserts

With the smallest point angle of all the insert shapes, these rhombic inserts are the best choice for profiling, finishing, and longitudinal turning applications. They have a 35° point angle and are well suited for detailed turning applications with limited machine power.

Insert shapes are available with a range of point angles. In general, inserts with a large point angle have a stronger cutting edge but produce more vibration and require more machine power than inserts with a small point angle. Inserts with a small point angle are more versatile, provide better accessibility for detailed cutting, produce less vibration, and require less machine power than inserts with a large point angle, but they have a weaker cutting edge and may be more prone to heat damage.

Inserts are available with a negative or positive basic shape. Negative inserts have a 0° clearance angle. They provide good edge strength and are recommended for external turning and heavy cutting applications. Double-sided negative inserts offer twice as many cutting edges as positive inserts, but single-sided negative inserts provide the best stability in heavy roughing applications. Positive inserts have a clearance angle that is greater than 0° and are a good choice for internal turning applications and external turning applications on slender workpieces. Positive inserts are single sided and produce lower cutting forces than negative inserts.
