Each insert has demonstrated exceptional performance on the full spectrum of workpiece materials you might encounter, providing "can't miss" product selection and significant inventory reduction potential. Carbi-Universal provides ultra-modern technology at vintage grade pricing.

As carbide tooling manufacturers introduce more and more inserts, with an increasingly complex array of geometries, grades and chipbreakers, Carbi-Universal puts an end to the confusion. Carbi-Universal offers just one grade for each style of insert that will do an excellent job for the operation you have selected on all the workpiece materials you have to cut.
