English term or phrase: identification of centre and peripheral inserts
cutting tools, drill characteristics

- good for long-chipping materials, stainless steel, etc.
- strong insert cutting edges with long, predicable tool-life
- no regrinding
- ***individual design and identification of centre and peripheral inserts***

cannot understand the meaning of the whole sentence

questions:
- grammar: is individual referred to design only or also to identification?
- cannot understand identification referred to a drill, in which sense identification??

thanks!

Explanation:
Most industrial machining this days is done using tools with hard-metal cutting inserts (carbide, etc.), and possibly this is supposed to mean 'centre and peripheral inserts individually (i.e, separately) shaped and marked' (so they can be told apart). But that's only a guess.
