Interpolation recess turning enables a turning process to be transmitted to a machining centre. This requires a tool spindle which can be programmed as an axis so that the tool can be guided outwards along a spiral interpolation path at grooving depth. In the process, as for turning, the cutting edge is positioned aligned with the drill hole wall at every point of the circular path.
The KOMET® interpolation recess turning tool features replaceable carbide inserts. For roughing and finishing in one work step using the same tool.
