High-performance tools with a long tool life are required for manufacturing the main shaft of a wind turbine. In this operation, a few tons of material have to be machined from solid. From a machining perspective, this forged component, which weighs several tons, calls for indexable inserts with reliable performance and very good temperature resistance because of the prolonged contact times. In addition, machining precision bores is always a challenge, technically speaking.
And we have just the right tools for the task.
Here is a small selection:
