tipped pcbn inserts in 90 degree square shape S for hard turning ferrous metals of cast iron and hardened steel, the cbn insert cutting edges are made with polycrystalline cubic boron nitride, indexable inserts with cbn tips are precision cutting tools, which are used in cnc fine finish machining and turning roller, bearing, pumps, automobile brake disk, aircraft jet engine.
solid corner cbn inserts have good heat absorption capacity, superior solderability and resistance to soldering heat, but solid corner thoroughly brazed cbn inserts have better impact resisrance, mainly for interrupted and heavy interrupted machining. each solid corner equals to two cutting edges when comparing with the tipped cbn inserts.
