Iscar, the largest of the 15 companies comprising the IMC (International Metalworking Companies) Group, has recently introduced a range of new products.
Tangfin new family of face milling cutters for extra fine surface finish
Iscar has introduced a new family of face milling cutters to provide a very high surface finish. The new HTF D…-R-LN10 cutters carry standard HTP LN…1006 tangentially clamped inserts with four cutting edges and can machine semi finishing and extra fine milling in a single pass. High surface quality is attained by means of a very rigid clamping of the inserts together with a long and straight wiper edge. The wiper effect is achieved with no need for wiper adjustment, reducing setup time.
The inserts are positioned in gradual locations on the cutter in both radial and axial directions with corners at varying diameters and heights. This special design causes each insert to cut only a small portion of the material in both radial and axial directions.
The cutter features a vibration-proof design. In addition, coolant holes are directed to each and every cutting edge, while a special protective polished coating on the cutter body ensures uninterrupted chip flow and protection against corrosion and wear.
The new face milling cutters are available in a diameter range of 50mm to 160mm and are designed for finish milling applications for extra fine surface quality – up to 0.1 Ra (μm).
NAN 3 FEED
At the EMO 2019, Iscar introduced the smallest high-feed multi-tooth cutter on the market. The NAN 3 FEED is Iscar’s brand new high-speed feed mill for single-sided, triangular, miniature indexable inserts (WSP) in the diameter range of 8mm to 10mm. Not only is it particularly small, it also has one more tooth compared to most WSP solutions on the market. This makes the tool quieter and the individual saws last longer.
The plates are made of PVD-coated grade IC830 and enable the efficient machining of steel, cast steel and ISO P. The main application for this new mill line is efficient roughing of small components, especially the milling of pockets and cavities in tool and mould making. NAN 3 FEED is also suitable for multitasking machining centers, power tools on lathes and low power machines.
MULTI F GRIP
Another new feature is the reinforced MULTI F GRIP tool holder for the new square adapters with four inserts of the TANG-GRIP and DO-GRIP systems in sizes of 2mm to 5mm. The system with internal targeted cooling is designed for high-feed parting of bars with diameters up to 120mm.
Thanks to its robust construction, MULTI F GRIP ensures vibration-free parting even with large rod diameters, longer insert life, higher surface finishes and straighter cuts. Thanks to its robust construction, MULTI F GRIP ensures vibration-free parting even with large rod diameters, longer insert life, higher surface finishes and straighter cuts. In addition, this solution can reduce the cutting width and thus reduce the consumption of raw materials. The tool holder is quick and easy to use and suitable for all machine types.
