The present invention provides a cutting insert (1), comprising: a first end surface (2); a second end surface (3) opposing the first end surface; a peripheral side surface (4) connecting the first end surface and the second end surface; a cutting edge (6) extending along an intersecting edge between the first end surface and the peripheral side surface; a land (20) formed in the first end surface so as to extend along the cutting edge; and at least one groove (18) formed in the peripheral side surface. Each groove forms an opening in the first end surface and is formed so as to separate the cutting edge into a plurality of portions. When the cutting insert is viewed from a direction facing the first end surface, the land is formed such that a portion of the land which is adjacent to an end area (S) of the groove has a greater width than a width of a portion of the land which is distant from the groove.

A cutting insert has a first end surface and a second end surface which are opposed to each other. The first end surface has at least one apex and two side edges which extend so as to sandwich the apex. At least part of the two side edges serves as a cutting edge. The first end surface has a rake surface which is connected to the cutting edge. As viewed in a cross-section which intersects with the two side edges and which is orthogonal to the second end surface, the rake surface is inclined relative to the second end surface.

This is to provide a coated cutting tool excellent in wear resistance, chipping resistance and fracture resistance than those of the conventional tools. The coated cutting tool comprises a substrate and a coating layer formed onto the surface of the substrate. The coating layer contains an outermost layer. The outermost layer contains NbN. The NbN contains cubic NbN and hexagonal NbN. When a peak intensity at a (200) plane of cubic NbN is made I_(c), a peak intensity at a (101) plane of the hexagonal NbN is made I_(h1), and a sum of peak intensities at a (103) plane and a (110) plane of the hexagonal NbN is made I_(h2) in X-ray diffraction analysis, a ratio [I_(h1)/(I_(h1)+I_(c))] of I_(h1) based on a sum of I_(c) and I_(h1) is 0.5 or more and less than 1.0, and a ratio [I_(h1)/(I_(h1)+I_(h2))] of I_(h1) based on a sum of I_(h1) and I_(h2) is 0.5 or more and 1.0 or less.

A coated cutting tool according to an aspect of the present invention comprises a substrate and a coating layer formed on a surface of the substrate. The coating layer comprises at least one -type aluminum oxide layer. In a cross-sectional surface of the -type aluminum oxide layer which is substantially parallel to the surface of the substrate, when an angle formed by a normal to the cross-sectional surface and a normal to a (222) plane of a particle of the -type aluminum oxide layer is regarded as a misorientation, and when areas of particles, each of which has a misorientation ranging from 0 degrees to 90 degrees, of the -type aluminum oxide layer are defined as constituting 100 area%, and the areas of particles, each of which has a misorientation ranging from 0 degrees to 90 degrees, of the -type aluminum oxide layer are divided into respective 10-degree pitches, a total Sa of the areas of particles, each of which has a misorientation ranging from 20 degrees to below 30 degrees, of the -type aluminum oxide layer is at a maximum from among totals of areas for nine divisions in respective 10-degree pitches.


The present invention relates to an insert attachment mechanism (100) for detachably attaching a cutting insert (2) to an insert attachment part (21) of a tool body (3). The insert attachment mechanism comprises an adjustment member (30) and a wedge member (10). The adjustment member (30) is arranged on an inner side of the cutting inset so as to act on the cutting insert in the insert attachment part. The adjustment member is advanceable and retractable in a direction of the central axis of a screw member (40) by rotating the screw member. The wedge member is arranged together with the cutting insert on the outer side of the adjustment member in the insert attachment part and attached so as to exert a pressing force against the cutting insert and an inner wall surface of the insert attachment part. The wedge member (10) is configured such that the screw member (40) is accessible from the outer side of the wedge member (10).


A plate member of a cutting tool has two side surfaces being substantially rectangular in shape, a top surface and a bottom surface extending in a direction along a long side of the rectangle, and two end surfaces in a short-side direction. A cutting edge is located on the side of one of the end surfaces. One of the side surfaces is a curved surface bulging outward. The bottom surface has an inclined portion which is inclined with respect to the top surface. The plate member is held by a tool block having a bottom restraining surface which comes into contact with the bottom surface, and is fastened to the tool block by using a clamp member having a top restraining surface which comes into contact with the top surface of the plate member. This allows adjustment of a projection length of a cutting edge while holding the plate member in a stable manner, thereby suppressing chatter vibration and improving the quality of a finished surface.
