The V6 insert from Vargus offers revolutionary gains in productivity as well as tremendous savings in tooling costs with its six-cutting corner system. Doubling the number of corners of conventional systems from 3 to 6, V6 has the ability to halve users' tooling costs by enabling all six corners to be applied to the same application, using existing toolholders.
