miniTURN Solid Carbide

ZCC Cutting Tools Europe continues to develop its miniTURN system efficiently 

Medical technology, automotive, precision mechanics, watchmaking and aerospace are particularly demanding industries in which micro-machining plays an important role.  With the characteristic applications such as precise turning, grooving, chamfering, thread turning and axial grooving of small and very small diameters, the focus is always on the production of high-quality micro components. The use of the versatile miniTURN SystemTM Solid Carbide from ZCC Cutting Tools Europe is ideally suited for this type of micro-machining.


Micro-machining requires a particularly high cutting edge quality and stability of the products in order to avoid chipping at the cutting edge. The application technology of ZCC Cutting Tools Europe therefore continuously checks the performance of the products and optimises the application parameters, if necessary also customer-specific.


After the current design update of the mini solid carbide tools with new cutting edges as well as the new turning grade YPG202, materials can be economically machined more effectively: up to 30 % more tool life, as internal tests and field tests show.


The grinding process during production and also the post-treatment of the tools could be optimised for the new cutting edge design, which demonstrably leads to an improved cutting edge quality overall and to the reduction of cutting edge chipping The high-performance grade YPG202, which was specially developed for machining demanding materials, additionally improves the performance of the tools. It reduces wear and the coefficient of friction, which leads to a longer tool life of the miniTURNs. Due to the coating, higher cutting speeds are no obstacle at the same time. The current generation of miniTURN tools has thus been specially developed for the special demands of high-tech industries.
