Machine steel - and do so efficiently
Higher performance or a longer tool life? You can have both!
ISO-P steels are extremely diverse and correspondingly challenging. The versatile range of ISO-P indexable inserts impresses with high-performance solutions for the universal turning and drilling of ISO-P steels.

Wear detection means that optimum utilisation of the multi-edged indexable insert can be identified with a quick glance at the cutting edges. Wear on the cutting edges is also easier to see and easier for the machine operator to identify.
A comparison between the insert detection of our new ISO-P insert (CTCP115-P in the example) and its predecessor insert is shown here.
Dragon strength in steel machining
Due to the vast range, machining ISO-P steels is anything but simple. To make machining the biggest material group in metal machining easier for machine operators, we have rethought everything from the substrate to the geometries, right through to the coating – for optimal breakage resistance and hardness of cutting edges. The Dragonskin coating makes a decisive contribution here. Its optimised layer structure is designed specifically to:
Test report for the old and new ISO-P turning indexable insert
> CTCP115-P turning grade in the example
Indexable insert: CNMG 120408EN-M50
Material: 1.2343 – X37CrMoV 5-1 44 HRC
Cutting data: vc 70-130 m/min | f 0.35 mm/U | ap 2 mm
|Cutting speed vc
|Increase in %
Result: Depending on the cutting speed, an increase in performance of up to 45% can be achieved with the CTCP115-P grade.
In episode 7 of THE CUT
, host Brian Lorenzen, product manager Stefan Karl and innovation manager Kathrin Weirather talk about challenges in the turning of steel, the latest developments in turning and our new ISO-P grades with indicator layer – the perfect solution for turning steel.
