As the manufacturing sector begins its recovery from the downturn attributed to COVID-19, Ceratizit has stepped up to provide a helpful hand in controlling tooling costs.
The introduction of its Standard Line of ISO turning inserts is said to provide customers with significant cost benefits, while retaining quality and performance.
In order to achieve these cost savings for customers, Ceratizit has streamlined the Standard Line into just three grades, with a reduced number of seven insert shapes. These shapes include the popular CNMG, DNMG, CCMT and DCMT styles, in a range of insert sizes, giving over 100 inserts from which to select. As highlighted by the insert designations, both positive and negative inserts are available, with a choice of two chip-breaker styles to suit specific machining applications.
Standard Line inserts are manufactured to the company’s exacting standards at Ceratizit’s Reutte, Austria facility, and by limiting the range to the most popular styles and sizes, volume manufacturing is helping to drive down costs.
“The Standard Line of turning inserts will benefit many customers, particularly those in the subcontract sector, where batch sizes may be low and frequently changed, and where business is price-focused,” explains Tony Pennington, managing director of Ceratizit UK & Ireland. “For example, savings when compared with mainstream competitors can be as high as 75% per insert, giving customers the competitive edge they are looking for in these challenging times.”
Standard Line turning inserts are available ex-stock with the same delivery promise as with all of Ceratizit’s products; if ordered by 18:30, delivery is guaranteed the next morning before noon.
