ISCAR Hi-Density Cutters Improve GROOVE MILLING Two Ways
ISCAR has expanded its CHAMSLIT line to include high-performance grooving cutters for O-rings, retainers, circle clips and related applications. The cutters offer 50% higher insert density than any of the competitor’s cutters for faster cutting. The TRI inserts provide three times as many edges per insert to reduce consumables costs.
Tests have shown that an added benefit of such a high insert density is that the cutter keeps performing safely even if one cutting edge fails.
CHAMSLIT grooving cutters also can handle square, round and chamfer grooves, as well as thread profiles.
Two added features enable you to work closer to the bottom of a groove, slot or cavity. The TRI insert sits slightly tilted in the pocket for bottom relief, and the overall low-profile cutter design permits shallow face milling right next to the bottom.
Available in a diameter range of 32.2 to 80 mm, they can cut grooves up to 4.8 mm deep. To reduce cutter inventory, a single tool accommodates a 1.2 to 4.01 mm insert width range. All cutters come with coolant holes directing flow right to the cutting edge. The thick, strong inserts are made of tough, versatile carbide grade IC 908.
