Comparison of turning inserts and conventional inserts

Both turning inserts and traditional inserts have their own advantages and applications, and which one is better depends on the specific machining task and needs.

Advantages of turning inserts: Turning inserts are usually made of carbide, which has high hardness and wear resistance, so it has a long life. They are easy to replace, thus reducing downtime and increasing productivity. At the same time, turning inserts can be designed and manufactured into different insert shapes and cutting geometries to meet different processing needs. Suitable for high-precision machining, high-speed cutting and mass production situations, such as lathe processing.

Advantages of Traditional Blades: Traditional blades can be used on a variety of different materials and tasks, including wood, plastic, paper, cloth, and more, making them versatile in a variety of applications. Plus some traditional blades are relatively cheap, easy to replace, and suitable for one-time or shorter-life tasks. At the same time, the shape and use of traditional blades can be customized according to needs, so they have greater flexibility.

Overall, turning inserts have clear advantages in many modern machining scenarios due to their indexable design and high degree of customizability. However, in certain situations, traditional blades may still be a valid option. If necessary, you may consider consulting Zhuzhou Jinxin Carbide to determine which blade is more suitable in a specific situation.
