GROOVING

Tiny Tools

A family of tools designed for working in small bores. These tools are made for the high-tech, medical & small components industries. They can be used in machining centers, or with conventional machines. All tools include through-coolant, enabling the cooling fluid to reach the cutting edge efficiently.

Features:

  • Supports diameters as small as 1.0 mm (for some tools)
  • The through-coolant aids in chip removal, helping to achieve a smooth cutting action
  • Most turning applications supported (thread turning, grooving, profiling, boring, and more)
  • Variants for both right-hand and left-hand jobs available (except for MVR bars)

The following product lines can used for grooving:
