PENTACUT is ISCAR’s most advanced multifunction tool, which not only performs precision grooving, parting, recessing and chamfering, but can also serve as a forming tool for applications such as bearing. PENTACUT inserts can now be ground to the required profile in order to suit the end-user’s requirements. Consequently, the PENTACUT can now superimpose the shape of its cutting edge into the OD face of the workpiece, producing a multitude of complicated shapes and profiles.
The cost effectiveness of an insert with 5 cutting edges has long been recognized by the mass production industry. The ability of the inserts to be mounted on a variety of modular adapters, blade adapters for large overhang or mini-turrets for turn-mill machines, has tremendously increased the potential for manufacturing flexibility. The short head of the holder also provides minimum overhang and high stability, which results in prolonged tool life.
