  • AC5000S Turning Grades for Exotic Alloys
    AC5015S for general purpose and the AC5025S for heavy interrupted machining. AC5000S ensures absolutely stable cutting in heat resistant alloys like inconel and hastelloy! This series is ideal for industries such as aerospace, medical, and oil & gas....

  • The AC5000S Series, Sumitomo’s newest innovation in turning for exotic alloys. The AC5015S for general purpose and the AC5025S for heavy interrupted machining. Combining the new Absotech®Bronze coating with the newly developed carbide substrate to achieve unsurpassed wear resistance, the AC5000S Series ensures absolutely stable cutting in heat resistant alloys like inconel and hastelloy! This series is ideal for industries such as aerospace, medical, and oil & gas.

    New Absotech®Bronze, the PVD coating technology incorporates a highly heat-resistant ultra-multi-layer thin-film AlTiSiN structure resulting in excellent crater wear resistance and flank wear resistance. In addition to the coating technology, AC5000S Series integrates a newly developed rigid carbide substrate material that demonstrates 20% greater toughness vs. conventional grades. The new substrate features a revolutionary new sintering process, maintaining hardness while greatly improving rigidity, reducing notch wear and improving chipping resistance.

    Test results have shown AC5000S Series to double tool life vs. competition while increasing speed and significantly reducing cycle time in normally difficult to cut materials. Recommended chipbreakers available for AC5000S Series EEF for finishing, EEG for medium cutting, and EEM for rough/ interrupted cutting. Developed for and first available in North American market Sumitomo Electric Carbide, Inc. is proud and excited to bring AC5000S Series to our customers!

  • GND Grooving Toolholders
    Sumitomo’s grooving is highlighted with its range of chipbreakers (10 styles available!) GND has a monoblock structure & die steel bodies, provides for stability and controls vibration. GND features holders for groove-turn, profiling, and face-grooving....

  •  Sumitomo’s grooving toolholders, is highlighted with its wide range of chipbreakers now reaching double digits (10 styles available)! GND Grooving Toolholders feature a monoblock structure and die steel bodies, which not only provides for stable processing, but controls vibration maximizing the very rigid body’s capabilities. The design reduces chattering by 30% compared to conventional products. Not solely for grooving, the GND series features holders for groove-turn, profiling, and face-grooving.

    The newly developed GND-J, the 2-hole coolant through design optimizes cooling of the insert and improves chip removal, extending tool life and allowing for improved speeds and feeds in production. Product linup offering grooving widths ranging from 0.079" to 0.250". GND-J acheives both high efficiency in high speed machining and tool life due to internal coolant supply to the cutting edge.

    New CF Chipbreaker for cut-off applications. With lead angles of 10° and 15° for significantly improved sharpness in cut-off machining. The advantage of the CF is the assymmetrical chipbreaker design allowing for remarkable chip control even in difficult to machine parts.

  • TSX Tangential Milling Cutter
    TSX, Sumitomo’s newest in Milling, is a high efficiency & high precision shoulder milling cutter featuring cost effective 4 corner tangentially mounted inserts....

  • The newTSX  is highlighted by an improved insert (LNEX) lineup, the new modular head inch series and custom TSX tooling information. The TSX Series achieves excellent edge sharpness and side wall accuracy with optimized chipbreaker and is available in two insert sizes offering a max depth of cut of 8mm (.315") and 12mm (.473"). The modular head series is suitable for milling with long overhangs when combined with carbide or steel arbors ranging from 120mm (4.72") to 300mm (11.81").
