ISCAR Tooling Upgrades

ISCAR has been introducing a myriad of new products, each one aiming for the 3 P's: higher Productivity, Profitability and Performance.
Some of the foremost features of these new products:
• New grades and coatings to enable cutting tools to machine faster, run cooler, resist built-up edge and last longer.
• New geometries to reduce cutting forces, save energy, improve chip control and provide more edges per insert.
• More versatile multifunction tools to support the "complete machining" trend on CNC mill-turn centers.
• Stronger self-clamping designs on stationary tools, enabling them to withstand heavy duty interrupted cuts.
