SCT indexable boring bars consist of micro grain carbide shanks with heat-treated steel heads. Select tools are crafted with a unique top cut which strengthens the pocket by 40% and directs chips away from the cut zone. Bars are stocked with or without flats and are available with or without coolant holes. Inserts are available uncoated or in ALTiN+ coating and are available as diamond-shaped or triangle-shaped. Other insert options include PCD-tipped or CBN-tipped inserts. Right-handed bars are compatible with chip control inserts.
