Betalent carbide offers standard carbide turning inserts in different shapes, different application. To select a proper turning insert, you need to consider insert shape, it is the first important factor which relates to the main deflection angle of the insert, the sharp angle of the insert and the effective cutting edges, selection of insert shape is depending on the shape of the machining part. However, it is suggested that choose the insert with larger tip angle if can meet your needs because the higher the tip strength is. Only when complex profile, groove excavation and downhill profile you choose the small-tip-angle insert for the less interference phenomenon, the other factor including the price and the operation convenient.
According to the shape, inserts can be divided into different series. The following seven shapes are the most often used turning inserts charts.
