          • JetCut

          • DGNC - A New Parting Insert with Direct Jet Cooling
            ISCAR is introducing an upgraded DO-GRIP parting insert.

            The DGNC insert is the best solution for grooving and parting on high temperature alloys and on stainless steel.

            The insert features a coolant hole that passes through the insert, with an outlet near the cutting edge. The new DGNC inserts were designed for parting and grooving on stainless steel and high temperature alloys.

            When machining stainless steel or high temperature alloys, the temperature near the cutting edge becomes very high.
            These materials tend to adhere to the cutting edge, causing built-up edge. This phenomenon can be reduced or even eliminated, by efficient cooling of the cutting edge.
            In grooving and parting applications, there is a problem that the chip prevents the coolant from reaching the cutting edge.
            The new DGNC inserts are an ideal solution, as they have a coolant hole through the insert with an outlet near the cutting edge.

            The coolant reaches the cutting edge and the insert body is internally cooled.

            Materials such as titanium, inconel, or austenitic stainless steel tend to strain hardening during the cutting process and they form long and tangled chips. The efficient coolant supplied to the cutting zone decreases flank and cratering rates. This leads to substantially longer tool life and a better machined surface finish. The coolant supply can be attached directly to the DGFH-C blades used on the regular blocks, or through the SGTBU-C blocks which have coolant passages and connecting ports. In the first stage ISCAR will provide the 3 and 4 mm insert widths in the C- and J-type chipformer configurations with neutral and angular frontal cutting edges.

            • The HELI-GRIP product family is our first choice for general purpose groove-turn.
              Due to the twisted concept, HELI-GRIP inserts are the only double-ended inserts in the market that can groove deeper than the inserts’ length.

              Only 1 insert - 8 different applications:
              • External and internal grooving and turning
              • Face grooving and turning
              • Parting off
            • SumoGrip

            • New SUMO-GRIP System for Heavy Duty Groove-Turn Applications

            • Multifunction Tools

            • Internal Grooving with Indexable Multifunction Tools
              ISCAR’s very popular multifunction DR-MF tools family is being upgraded by new DRG-MF tools which can carry the XCMT-MF inserts and also a new insert type, XCMT-MG, designed for internal grooving.

              The new tools and inserts extend the application range of the current DR-MF tools by adding a grooving capability to drilling, internal turning/boring, external turning, and face turning applications. The new DRG-MF tools differ from the current DRMF tools by a new pocket design, which features a rear groove intended to accommodate the second cutting edge.

              The new XCMT-MG inserts with two cutting edges are made from grade IC808G, which is a submicron substrate TiAlN multilayer coating. This coating provides a high degree of reliability for cutting operations and a most competitive long edge life.
              The new grooving inserts can be used only on righthand tools.
              The new tools further enhance the reduction of customer inventory costs.
          • Face Grooving

                • Face Turning - Grooving Applications

                • ISCAR is introducing a new line of tools and inserts - TANG-GRIP tangentially clamped
                  single-ended inserts for face grooving. This new line includes single- and double-ended
                  blades and inserts in 3 and 4 mm widths, in the most advanced IC808 SUMO TEC grade.
                  In addition, ISCAR's precision tooling revolution includes HELIFACE, the versatile screw-clamped insert system that provides a complete solution for face grooving and face turning.
                  The HELIFACE chipformers were designed for optimal chip evacuation in face grooving, resulting in improved, trouble-free performance. Four types of adapters can be mounted on the same toolholder. External and internal face grooving and turning are possible with no limitation to widening the grooves after the initial pass. HELIFACE inserts feature twisted double-ended geometries for depth penetration greater than the insert length.

                  ISCAR has also introduced many new items for face grooving operations, such as PENTA face, MINCUT and PICCO.
            • Turning

                • Turning & Threading

                • ISCAR has multiple standard turning options of which the latest feature the new SUMOTURN line.
                  Tough insert coatings enable FMR (Fast Metal Removal) turning at incredible feed rates.
                    • JETHP Line

                    • ISCAR JETHP line, the innovative solution for ISCAR’s unique tool families, makes the most of your investment in the High Pressure Coolant (HPC) feature.

                      Now with the availability of high speed machines which offer standard or optional 70-bar coolant systems and through-spindle delivery, HPC technology has grown much more accessible – and proven to be timely. To complete the circle, ISCAR has provided hundreds of special HPC turning tools for a multitude of applications. ISCAR’s solutions have been implemented by satisfied customers for many years now.

                      HPC has proven itself in hundreds of dedicated turning applications on difficult-to-machine materials such as titanium and inconel, at removal rates of up to three times more than that of the conventional flood coolant system. Users report elimination of chip jamming, faster cutting and much longer edge life in outer and inner diameter turning as well as grooving, parting and hole making. The advantage of ISCAR’s JETHP line is also noticeable when machining steel parts, where the chips are more manageable and insert life is significantly improved.

                      The coolant is delivered with enough force and fast enough to reach the cutting zone as a liquid, not a vapor. In the liquid phase, it lubricates the cutting process, as it quenches the molten chip, shattering it into smaller, more manageable pieces. Also, because of its internal flow path, HPC keeps the tool, insert and workpiece cooler, leading to much longer tool and equipment life.

                      Another benefit is that delivering coolant close to the shear zone improves machineability of the material under high speed conditions. Higher pressure coolant, directed right at the cutting zone, creates smaller chips, whether the material is titanium, inconel or steel.

                      ISCAR JETHP tools are designed to operate at extreme pressure and high cutting rates. They deliver a higher performance level than their conventional internal coolant counterparts made for lower pressure service. This additional benefit is provided when using the JETHP line also with conventional machine pressure.
                    • HeliTurn

                    • A New 80º Rhombic Insert with High Helical Cutting Edge for High Metal Removal Rates

                      ISCAR is introducing the CNMX 1207..-HTW insert family.
                      The new insert has a very positive radial, helical cutting edge and a positive rake angle - a combination which substantially reduces the cutting forces. The insert's corner has a wiper configuration which produces high surface finish even at high feed conditions, which in many occasions can eliminate a finishing cut. The corner angle is 88° which provides increased strength. The CNMX inserts were designed for heavy machining applications. Their unique design ensures reliable, fast metal removal when using 80° rhombic inserts.
                      They can be mounted on any standard toolholder that carries standard CNMG inserts, but the seat has to be replaced with a special seat: TCH 4. ISCAR's R-clamp toolholders are most recommended for heavy machining applications.

                    • SumoTurn

                    • SUMO TEC - Application Colors

                      In order to facilitate our customers in selecting the correct grade for their applications, ISCAR has developed new coating processes for the new SUMO TEC grades which will feature different colors for easy identification. All former SUMO TEC grades featured the same gold color.
                      The new coating technology improves the insert life by 5 to 12%, compared to the previous coatings.

                    • DoveIQTurn (High Feed Turning Inserts)

                    • ISCAR is introducing the PWXOL 3232P-10-TF-IQ lever lock 18.5° lead angle toolholders, for fast feed, up to 3 mm/rev and small, up to 2.8 mm D.O.C. longitudinal turning. The new tools carry WOMG 100716-T3P-IQ double-sided 10° negative flank trigon inserts, for high feed turning of steel.
                      Due to their ability to run at extremely high feeds, the new tools are used to reduce machining time and costs.
                    • DoveIQTurn (Innovative Clamping System)

                    • Rough turning is characterized by high D.O.C. (4-10 mm) and high feed rates (0.4-1.0 mm/rev).
                      Usually large single-sided inserts are used on top-clamp toolholders to withstand interrupted cut and high machining load. The current method of using single-sided inserts and top-clamp holders has the disadvantages of a small amount of cutting edges and interrupted chip flow due to the obstruction of the top clamp.

                      ISCAR has developed an innovative dovetail pocket combined with a lever clamping mechanism. The new system provides a very firm and rigid insert clamping, eliminating the need for a top clamp, which interrupts chip flow.
                      The DOVE IQ TURN clamping mechanism can firmly hold double-sided inserts featuring double negative prism flanks. The dovetail pocket and insert prismatic flanks prevent the insert from being lifted by the cutting forces.
                      Available are three insert geometries with prismatic flanks: WOMG-R3P-IQ, COMG-R3P-IQ and SOMG-R3P-IQ, designed with a new R3P chipformer for rough turning of steel.
                    • FlashTurn

                    • In many turning applications people tend to use larger inserts than are actually required for the machining parameters being applied, Therefore, ISCAR is introducing a wide range of ISOTURN small size inserts, which provide an economical advantage regarding cost per cutting edge.

                      The new inserts are available in a wide range of geometries, corner radii, chipformers and the most advanced carbide grades. They are available in WNMG, CNMG, SNMG, DNMG and TNMG geometries. These inserts are thicker than the standard inserts of the same sizes, which provides higher durability.

                      Also available are small size HELITURN LD inserts in CNMX and TNMX geometries. These inserts, like their larger counterparts, have high positive radial, helical cutting edges and positive rake angles - a combination that substantially reduces cutting forces.
                    • IsoTurn (YNMG - Small Size Inserts)

                    • ISCAR has added a new geometry to its line of small economical inserts: YNMG 1604… This insert fits into the VNMG 1604… insert's standard pocket. The YNMG 1604… insert features a 25º corner angle. It was designed for turning of very narrow V-shaped grooves which cannot be machined by the standard 35º inserts.
                    • Safe-T-Lock

                    • ISCAR is introducing the SDNCN 2525M-13-SL screw lock toolholder for 55° diamond inserts with a 7° clearance angle. A long groove on the pocket and a matching ridge at the insert bottom ensure high rigidity in profiling applications.

                      The new design ensures high edge location after indexing and no backlash when changing machining direction, as required in profiling applications.

                      The new DCMT 13T5..-F3P 55° rhombic positive flank inserts with new F3P and M3M chipformers were designed for semi-finishing and finishing of steel and stainless steel.
                      A ridge at the insert bottom which fits onto a long groove on the tool’s seat ensures high edge location precision.

                      The new design enables machining at high chip load, thus reducing machining cycle time while maintaining high profile accuracy.
                    • IsoTurn (R3P Chipbreaker for Rough Machining)

                    • Single-sided insert chipbreaker for rough machining of steel
                      Reinforced cutting edge
                      Positive rake angle for smooth cutting and reduced cutting forces
                    • HeavyTurn

                    • ISCAR is introducing the PLBOR/L 5050T-40 tools and LOMX 402224-H6P insert for very heavy turning applications.

                      The new tangentially clamped insert is made from the tough grade IC8250. It can machine at up to 35 mm depth of cut and up to 2 mm/rev feed. The insert is clamped on a very rigid lever lock pocket equipped with a protective seat.

                      The new tools were designed for use in heavy industry applications such as the power generation, marine and large automotive parts.
                    • CombiDLock

                    • ISCAR is introducing an upgraded lever lock to improve the clamping rigidity of the popular and user-friendly insert clamping system.
                      The new design actually combines the advantages of the current lever with the extra clamping rigidity of the top clamp method.
                      The current lever pushes the insert against the pocket, perpendicularly to the cutting force. This method sometimes fails during interrupted cut or heavy load applications, which causes the rear side of the insert to rise.

                      The top clamp mechanism does provide high clamping security, but on the other hand edge or insert indexing is inconvenient and time consuming and the top clamp obstructs the chip flow – especially during internal turning applications.

                      ISCAR’s new LR 4TL TOP LEVER combines the advantages of both systems. It firmly holds the insert in the pocket and also exerts an upper force on the rear side of the insert. It leaves the insert rake face unobstructed for free chip flow, while maintaining convenient insert handling and extremely high clamping security.

                      The new LR 4TL TOP LEVER can replace the standard LR 4 lever in any tool.

                    •  
                    • IsoTurn (IS6 - New SiAlON Ceramic Grade)

                    • The IS6 grade was developed in order to increase productivity in cast iron turning, as a complementary grade to the IS8 and IS80. IS6 can be used also for high productivity in rough turning of steel mill rolls composed of high-Cr steel, HSS (High Speed Steel) and adamite. The SiAlON material is characterized by high hardness, combined with moderate fracture toughness and excellent thermal resistance. These characteristics are achieved by a manufacturing technology of precisely-controlled alloy composition and a special sintering process that enables the IS6 grade to function at higher cutting speeds than the SiN-based ceramic grades.

                      Recommended Cutting Parameters:
                      Roughing: 500 - 1,000 m/min
                      Finishing: 600 - 1,200 m/min
                    • IsoTurn (IW7 - New Whisker Ceramic Grade)

                    • The new IW7 grade is suitable for turning Ni-based super alloys (e.g. Inconel), Co-based super alloys (e.g. Stellite) and for roughing hard castings and hardened steel.

                      Main Advantages:
                      • High hardness (Hv 2,100)
                      • High fracture toughness due to SiC (silicon carbide) whisker
                      • reinforced ceramics
                      • Excellent thermal shock resistance, which enables using coolant
                      • and interrupted cut machining
                      • Excellent for roughing and semi-finishing operations at 8-10 times
                      • faster cutting speeds when compared with carbide grades
                      • Good oxidation resistance due to its alumina substrate

                      As IW7 maintains high hardness at very high temperatures, super alloys and hard materials can be machined at high cutting speeds. The heat generated during high cutting speeds causes the material being cut to soften and thus reduces the cutting forces.

                      Recommendations:
                      • Use ISCAR T-type clamp toolholders designed for ceramic inserts.
                      • For roughing applications always choose the strongest insert shape
                      • possible: round or square with a large corner radius.
                      • 15° or 45° lead angle is recommended.
                      • Chamfered entry and exit will reduce notch wear to improve
                      • tool life and surface finish.
                      • Select the largest possible corner radius and thickest insert.
                      • Use toolholders or boring bars with the largest possible
                      • cross section and minimal overhang for best stability.
                      • Heavy metal or carbide boring bars should be preferred.

                      The IW7 grade was developed to compete against competitors’ grades such as: WG300 (Greenleaf), KY4300 (Kennametal), CC670 (Sandvik), etc.

                    • Sumo TEC

                    • A New PVD Coated Grade for Turning and Grooving High Temperature Alloys

                      Important Features
                      ISCAR grade IC806 is a new complimentary SUMO TEC PVD coated grade for machining high temperature alloys, especially Inconel 718

                      New Grade for Inconel Machining
                      Inconel 718 belongs to a family of nickel based superalloys which are used extensively for applications where withstanding high temperatures and high corrosion resistance is required. Inconel 718 is widely used in the aerospace industry in components which are placed in the hot section of the engine and in additional sectors of the oil industry. The microstructure of Inconel 718 is made of an austenitic structure possessing high tensile and yield strength.
                      The major problems encountered when machining Inconel 718 are characterized by very high temperatures on the cutting edge of the insert due to the abrasive elements in the material composition (high nickel content of 50-55% and chrome 17-21%) which causes high wear rates, chipping, notching and insert breakage.
                      These factors contribute to reduced tool life and high deformation of the cutting edge even at low cutting speeds.
                      Another complexity associated with Inconel is its tendency to malform, consequently due to its metallurgical sensitivity to residual stresses and self hardening effects during the cutting operation. ISCAR’s aim is to effectively machine this unique material, and has therefore successfully developed the IC806, which is a submicron grade with superior wear resistant properties and advanced PVD TiAlN. ISCAR’s SUMO TEC coating exhibits better results compared to competitor’s grades as well as other ISCAR grades.
                      IC806 has a hard submicron substrate with PVD coating and a special post coating treatment which provides substantially improved tool life and better reliability.

                    • Exchangeable Heads

                    • As a result of the increasing popularity of Turn-Mill machining centers, ISCAR has decided to expand the range of exchangeable head tools.

                      ISCAR has developed a range of HSK A63 WH toolholders and tool adapters for Turn-Mill machines. These holders comply with a new HSK standard interface, recently introduced under the ICTM standard - Interface Committee for Turn-Mill and Mill-Turn machines.

                      The ICTM standard’s objective is to improve the angular positioning accuracy of the turning tools by tightening the tolerances between the spindle drive key and the holder key slot. The designation for the new standard for turning tools is HSK A63 WH….

                      The advantage of adopting the new HSK A63 WH standard is the ability to use the rotating toolholders from the conventional CNC machining centers on the multifunction Turn-Mill macines as well.

                  • Threading

                      • Deca-IQ-Thread

                          • 50% less inventory
                          • Insert indexing without removing the screw

                          The new inserts feature an innovative oval-shaped hole that enables 2 important improvements. In the existing line different tools and inserts are used for back and front clamping orientations.
                          The new clamping design uses a special screw that can be accessed and operated from both tool sides. The screw has to be fully removed for insert indexing. As the clamping screw is small, it can easily fall and disappear inside the machine or on the floor. In the upgraded line, the insert can be indexed without the need to fully remove the screw. Therefore, there is no risk of falling parts and indexing is easier and faster.
                        • SwissTurn

                                • Iscar's gundrill consists of a single piece carbide head, a streamlined shank and a driver through which coolant flows to the working end where it is most needed. Chips are evacuated along the V-shaped external flute.

                                  The Drilling Head
                                  The carbide head is tapered on its length to reduce friction. The taper angle depends on the type of material to be drilled. For high precision drilling, the taper should be reduced to a minimum. Note that when the head is resharpened, the diameter of the drill changes, affecting the hole tolerance.

                                  The Shank
                                  The cross-section of the shank is V-shaped with coolant holes. It is made of hardened steel that is highly resistant to twisting. This cross-section provides the optimal conditions for twist resistance, coolant flow and chip evacuation.

                                  The Driver
                                  The driver ensures the connection between the gundrill and the machine tool. Iscar’s advanced gundrill technology provides superior geometric and dimensional quality for both deep and shallow drilling. The drills are available in the range of 2.5 to 32 mm in 0.1 mm increment diameters. Larger diameters, between 32 and 40 mm, are available upon request. In addition, any other drilling head configuration or coated drilling head can be produced upon request.

                                          • New solid endmills have a special edge configuration for machining CFRP composite parts and honeycomb.
                                            The increased popularity of composites in aerospace applications creates new challenges for metal cutting shops. One of these substances, Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP), can be especially difficult to machine.

                                            These materials are extremely abrasive and difficult to machine, as a result of the different physical properties of the materials used in the layers that make these composites hard, tough and strong. Due to the harsh cutting environment, tool life can be very short when machining CFRP composites.
                                            The impact of the cutting edge fractures the hard carbon fibers, instead of shearing material away. This process causes the cutting edge considerable abrasion that can lead to rapid wear.
                                            In order to successfully machine CFRP, ISCAR offers hard, sharp solid-carbide tools made from grade IC02 which can be supplied on request with long-lasting diamond coating (IC2018).

                                                    • FDN-XN13 is a new family of full slot milling cutters with square inserts that provide an effective and economical solution for machining slots and grooves.

                                                      ISCAR’s new FDN-XN13 cutters carry XNMU 130608PNM-MM patent pending configuration inserts.

                                                      XNMU 130608PNM-MM is a robust double-sided square insert, featuring 8 (4 right-hand and 4 left-hand) helical cutting edges and unique twisted upper and bottom surfaces. The inserts, when clamped on the cutter, produce staggered teeth with alternating axial rakes, which contribute to very stable cutting even under high chip load. The twisted positive rakes cause a smooth cutting action, and it is rigidly secured in the cutter.

                                                      Due to a combination of staggered teeth, positive rake and reliable insert clamping, the cutters feature high performance reliability and productivity.

                                                      The FDN-XN13 flange-type cutters are available in the diameter range of 32-200 mm for 14-24 mm slot widths.

                                                      The unique XNMU 130608PNM-MM inserts are probably the first double-sided inserts with 4 R.H. and 4 L.H. helical cutting edges for slot milling cutters. They are made from the

It exerts a very high clamping force when the clamping nut (2) is rotated in the axial direction. The shallow taper of the tool nose (1) and the angled position of the needle bearing (4) that sits in the cage create the axial movement of the clamping nut (2).
                                                                    This unique clamping mechanism eliminates axial movement of the shank while clamping, simplifying the preset process.

                                                                        A clamping screw pushes the shank of the tool through a narrowed opening forcing elastic deformation of the steel holder and face contact.
                                                                        As the steel contracts around the tool, contact is made around slightly more than a full 180°.
                                                                        The result is rigidity comparable to a solid part.

The even surface contributes to smooth uninterrupted chip flow, less generated heat and less friction. This improves toughness and chipping resistance, thus reducing friction and built-up edge, which in turn prolongs tool life at increased machining conditions for all types of workpiece material.
                                                                          • ISCAR Grades
