ANC Launches Comprehensive Line of Inserts and Tooling for Standard Turning

June 1, 2014

HOUSTON — American National Carbide (ANC) has launched a new and improved comprehensive line of inserts and tooling for standard turning operations.  Included in the updated offering are positive and negative rake carbide, ceramic, CBN, and PCD turning inserts in grades that cover all six of the ISO application categories, a complete line of industry-standard toolholders, boring bars, interchangeable heads, and associated spare parts.  The new line is highlighted in a 126-page catalog that is available now.

“This is the most ambitious product launch we’ve ever undertaken,” says D. Greg Stroud, President.  “We now have a solution for virtually every standard turning application, so large and small customers alike can benefit from the value ANC provides.”

Featured in the offering are several new grades and insert chip control configurations for machining across the entire ISO application range.  ANC continues to offer specialty turning products for heavy industry, brake drum and rotor turning, and parting, each highlighted in its own individual catalog.

This new offering of turning inserts and tooling will be followed by a series of other metalworking product launches, including inserts for milling and threading and grooving applications.

“We are actively seeking distributors worldwide for this new, comprehensive line.  We fill a unique niche by offering high-performance and value options, so the line should be attractive to any distributor, whether we’re ultimately their flagship line or simply a complementary supplier.”
