Sorma improves Nikko Tools catalogue


sorma-toolsSorma S.p.A. has enhanced Nikko Tools catalogue, improving the range of indexable tools launched in 2006. The family of solutions for turning with positive inserts extends with the introduction of PFU geometry for ISO P, ISO M and ISO S materials finishing applications and PRU geometry with reinforced cutting edge for roughing/heavy roughing applications on ISO P e ISO K materials. These two new geometries complete the range, already including PMN geometry, featuring Aluminum-specific cutting edge, and PMU geometry, for general purpose applications on all materials.

The second big news relates to the RekPlus range of inserts for 90° shouldering, now enriched by the new geometries with helical cutting edge HGP, for general- purpose applications, and HSC, suitable for applications on stainless steel and heat-resistant alloys, thanks to the reduced cutting forces. These two new helical geometries allow a significant improvement in performances and above all enable a much better orthogonality of shouldering.

«With the introduction of these geometries we are confident that we have given to our customers a further sign that their feedback are always considered with the highest priority – says Giancarlo Galluzzi, General Manager Indexable Tools Sorma – We know that the excellent reactions from the market across all Europe about Nikko Tools are related to the very high quality of the products and the professionality of our sales channel, but for us it’s also very important to make sure that investments are based on the most urgent requirements of the market».

The new Nikko Tools products, premiered at AMB Stuttgart, follow up to those presented last year at EMO that included the new range for drilling, threading and milling with the bilateral inserts Double3gon. All innovations are part of the development plan of Nikko Tools program that is taking place relentlessly since the launch of the catalogue. Initially designed to be a brand focussed on advanced materials (PCD e PCBN) solutions, the catalogue expanded to include ceramic inserts systems and then carbide, growing exponentially with excellent results in terms of market acceptance.
