LOVEJOY Tool Co., Inc. (Springfield, VT) offers expanded machining capabilities in the PCD diamond tooling products with PCD Chip Control Geometry Inserts. Break chips increase production and improve employee safety by eliminating the removal of a nest of stringy chips in aluminum and copper alloys, used in turning and boring especially on screw machines. The inserts are targeted to the customer that requires a chip breaker at the actual cutting point.

Conventional flat face PCD inserts in continuous contact machining, like boring or turning, can experience hard to handle continuous chips, which can cause lost production time or result in poor surface finish. The company’s chip control geometries put the chip control at the cutting point resulting in better control with a short chip. These inserts are offered in two chip breaker geometries, tailored to finishing or general purpose machining. These inserts produce less cutting pressures and heat expansion of the parts being machined allowing 20 to 30 percent increase in tool life and providing better surface finishes.
