A Leader in Metalworking Innovations

Innovation has made ISCAR the great metalworking company that it is today. But metalworking innovation would not be possible without a total commitment to research and development. Accordingly, ISCAR devotes approximately 8% of its total resources to R&D activities.
At ISCAR, creativity is a way of life. In addition to R&D, innovations come from personnel throughout the company.
ISCAR has set new standards for toolholders, new coatings and in metalworking applications for turning, milling and drilling. ISCAR innovations are not limited to new metalworking products. New, more efficient and more cost effective manufacturing procedures and processes are constantly being implemented. Improvements in computerization, data flow, quality assurance, employee safety and environmental protection are all a part of the ISCAR mentality. ISCAR is truly a company where innovation never stops.

The Development Stages

Each new product begins as an idea in an engineer’s mind. The image is entered into a computer aided design/machining (CAD/CAM) program. A prototype is produced and goes through exhaustive analyses. Repeated refinements, analyses, and testing continue until the exact results are achieved. Only after such an extensive development and testing sequence can the new idea move from the prototype phase to development for manufacturing.
