Allied Machine & Engineering has just announced the introduction of i6149 (Metric) style AccuPort 432 Port Contour Inserts made from C-3 carbide with AM200 coating. These inserts have the same geometry as the C-5 carbide TiAlN coated inserts which allows our customers to produce a finished port in one step!
They are stocking both ridged & non-ridged configurations.
Allied expects that the new C-3 AM200 coated porting tools should greatly improve tool life in gray iron manifold applications of up to 50% over their standard C-5 TiAlN inserts. You gotta love when companies like Allied who keep improving their own products when they're already a leader in the field!
Here's how the part numbers work:
