Grooving and Parting

Kildare Tooling offers an extensive range of parting and grooving tools, available for many different applications. From general grooving and parting, profiling and face grooving to internal precision grooving, turning and parting for small part machining, our extensive portfolio will meet with any requirement.

Grooving and small bore profiling is a common and often underestimated requirement in a large majority of manufacturing facilities. With the right choice of system and a select range of holders and inserts, you can greatly improve your capability to produce a wide variety of complex profiles. Our chosen suppliers for this sector are Dümmel and Kennametal.

Dümmel are without doubt at the very forefront of this area of the market. This hugely popular range of grooving products is widely used throughout manufacturing under many different brand names, but Kildare Tooling are privileged to be able to supply the product under the manufacturers own brand name. The quality and performance of these products are exactly what you would expect from a German precision manufacturer. With comprehensive grooving, boring and profiling capability from 0.2mm diameter using the Ultra-Mini range and increased versatility and options from 7.8mm diameter utilising the Mini-Cut range, Dümmel has the answers for the most demanding applications. A full external grooving system is also available from this grooving specialist. To complement the more common applications of internal, external and face grooving by turning, Dümmel also provide a comprehensive groove milling program for those demanding components which can only be milled. A broad spectrum of materials are able to be machined with any of these systems including materials up to 66HRC.
