Standard Insert Tooling
"Disposable" long-wearing solid carbide indexable inserts are used in a wide variety of tooling from router bits to edge banders, surfacing & planing heads, groovers, helical heads, etc. Instead of being welded to or brazed on, these inserts are held in place by a series of gibs and/or screws. This allows the use of harder grades of carbide, which tend to crack when subjected to the welding process. Many are turnable and are 2- or 4-sided. They are available in several different grades for a variety of materials. Edge of Arlington provides a large variety of standard insert tooling, but if you don't see what you need, we can custom make to meet your specific needs—feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to assist you.
