The WhizCut carbide grade allows the insert to have a very sharp but still strong edge. This also makes the inserts suitable for materials which are difficult to machine such as Titanium, stainless steel and Super Alloys.
The combination of the best grades of carbide, the most suitable geometries and very sharp cutting edges ensures the best tooling possible for Swiss type automatic / sliding head lathes.
WhizCut regularly develops special solution tooling for individual customers. Please contact a WhizCut distributor for a quote.
The WhizIn tool holder for boring bars has the carbide boring bar mounted at an angle to achieve the maximum stability for a set diameter. By grinding away less from the base of the boring bar, the boring bar becomes more stable. Other benefits are less grinding time and grinding stress and that the coolant may go through the tool holder and spray directly on to the insert cutting zone.
The WhizIn program includes a wide range of tool holders and boring bars for internal turning, grooving, threading, back turning and face grooving etc. The inserts are fully ground and made of micro grain carbide.
Have the cutting edge your way. WhizGroove inserts have four precision ground cutting edges and they come in four different shapes: sharp cutting edges and corners, corner radiuses, full radius and slightly honed cutting edges. It is a great combo of precision, stability and low cost per cutting edge.
WhizCut has been looking for a long time to improve the industry standard lay down thread turning inserts with three cutting edges. As specialists of small part machining we have developed a stand up insert. This enables us to design a threading insert with four cutting edges with increased performance. We have developed the threading inserts in geometries mostly common in Swiss type automatic lathes and use a carbide grade which has shown great performance in these sizes.
The patent pending design of WhizTwin generates a cutting edge stronger than any other and a stability not seen before. The strength and increased stability of the cutting edge is maximised with two cutting edges at the front. This lets the toolholder be clamped in a more stable position with a smaller overhang from the toolholder plate – reducing instability and vibrations which are the main chal-lenges when parting off.
Less material waste, less costs. WhizTwin is forceful, stable and overall brilliant. The narrow insert allows you to lower your production cost as you save material using it. Removing less bar material is great for you and also for the environ-ment. It’s a win win – with WhizTwin.
In addition to improved production methods we have found a very suitable wear resistant sub micrograin carbide.
With WhizDrill we have put together a range of micro drills that start at 0,1 mm and go up to 3 mm. These can be ordered to any geometry. If there is a special need for another grade of carbide, or coolant through that is also available. Contact your WhizCut representative for a quote.
Only two types of tool holders are needed to make use of the entire range of inserts. For maximum efficiency of insert tooling, WhizCut has developed the WhizFix tool holder system.
As the boring bar is mounted in a 2° angle in the toolholder, a natural incline angle is achieved which is perfect for high pressure coolant.
- Coolant through
- Double screws for security and stability
- Special tool holder designs for Swiss type automatic lathes
- The toolholder and boring bar has a self locating system. When clamping within 30° the boring bar rotates itself into a correct position.

The WhizHip distribution system is exactly this. It is developed so the user has a quick change connector and a flexible metal braided hosing. The metal braided hosing withstands the heat from hot chips shooting at the material and the system is developed to be used for up to 300 Bar (4351 PSI).
