TANG-GRIP Tangentially Clamped Single-Ended Inserts for Face Grooving

System Features
  • Very rigid clamping in a tangentially oriented pocket
  • Designed for face grooving in 25 to 500 mm penetration diameter range
  • Enables machining at very high feed rates and interrupted cuts, providing excellent surface finish
  • Offers a free, unobstructed chip flow, since there is no upper jaw as in the other clamping systems (very important in deep grooving applications)
  • The combination of tangential clamping and free chip flow results in very high reliability, improved tool and pocket life
  • Provides a solution to the problem of inserts being pulled out during retraction
  • The same insert can be used for both right- and left-hand tools
  • The combination of the C-type chipformer and the SUMO TEC grade IC808 provides excellent performance on a wide range of materials and cutting conditions
  • The new tools are equipped with a user-friendly clamping and extraction device


TANG-GRIP face machining line includes single- and double-ended blades and inserts in
3 and 4 mm widths in the most advanced IC808 SUMO TEC grade. The blades are in a standard size, which fit ISCAR’s standard blocks.
