Polygon Cutters

Polygon cutters are ideal for the efficient production of key flats on small turned parts.
Through polygon turning 2, 4, 6, or 8 flats can be realised, but also special forms.
Polygon turning is considerably quicker than milling.

Our polygon cutters are available with or without adjustable cartridges. Polygon cutters with adjustable cartridges have the advantage, that slight differences in measures on the separate flats can be compensated.

Please consider the following points regarding polygon turning:

  • Applicable in grooving and sliding head turning operations
  • Infeed preferably in axial direction for ideal running smoothness
  • Higher infeed is possible in axial direction than in radial direction
  • Alignment of control shaft between workpiece and tool is essential
  • Small degrees of crowning on the flats cannot be avoided
