Iscar’s PiccoCut line features a reinforced geometry designed for efficient deep face grooving, particularly external/internal and along a shaft. The tools are available in 3-, 4- and 5-mm widths, for depths ranging to 40 mm and a minimal grooving diameter of 16 mm. The solid carbide bars also feature two holes that enable precise coolant delivery to the cutting edge and the frontal flank. High-pressure coolant (ranging to 100 bar) produces chips that are small and easily pushed out of the groove. The cooling configuration also is said to substantially increase tool life and improve surface finish.

The face grooving tools are available in the company’s IC1008 PVD-coated grade, which is suitable for machining across a range of cutting speeds and on a variety of workpiece materials.

Also available from Iscar, PiccoAce holders feature a patented clamping system designed for accuracy, rigidity and flexibility of clamping orientation. The holders consist of a robust body and an eccentric cap that, when turned, enables the accenter to move a special locking shim that exerts pressure on the insert and locks it securely into a precise position.
