Locking Mechanism Element - Levers and Clamps
Benefit: Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding
End Use Sector: Cutting Tools, Engineering
Material: Ferrous

Process Steps: MIM, HIP and Heat Treatment


These parts provide the essential locking force to enable the clamping of an insert into different types of turning cutting tools. Robustness and reliability are key factors as well as reduced downtime.


The parts produced from 4340 steel are designed specifically for production using MIM technology to take advantage of its near net shape capabilities in a volume application.
