New Gear Milling Solutions
1. T-GEAR Milling Solid Carbide Heads with T-SLOT Spline Connection
ISCAR introduces new solutions for gear milling based on solid carbide milling heads and cutters carrying tangentially clamped inserts.
ISCAR is expanding the application options of T-SLOT slot milling cutters with replaceable solid carbide heads by adding new T-GEAR heads that have been designed for gear milling.
The new heads are designated as SD D32-M…-SP15, and have been designed for milling involute gears that meet the requirements of standard DIN 3972, with a basic profile II for finishing and a module range of 1.00 - 2.00 mm.
The new heads feature a nominal diameter of 32 mm with 8 teeth to be mounted on standard T-SLOT SD shanks with SP15 spline connection size.
The new heads enable efficient high-performance involute side milling, increasing the versatility of the T-SLOT tool family.

MODUGEAR Tool for Gear Milling Applications
Iscar introduces another solution for gear milling applications, providing a tool with tangentially clamped indexable inserts.
The new ETS D63-M1-1.75-W25-C disk type tool features a Weldon shank and coolant channels directed to each of the cutting edges. It carries 10 tangentially clamped inserts that can be used for a 1.00 to 1.75 mm gear module range.
The LNET 18-M1.50-NO3-C IC908 insert has been designed for milling involute gear teeth according to standard DIN 3972 basic profile II, with 1.5 mm module and 17-20 tooth range.
Other cutter diameters with alternative connection options (shank or arbor-types) or insert profiles within the mentioned module range can be provided on request.
The attached table provides starting cutting recommendations data. For machining in unstable
conditions, the table values should be reduced by 20-30%.
