ISCAR Metals (Decatur, TX) offers a revolutionary metalworking concept for increased productivity called 3P SUMO LINE. This concept presents Premium Productivity Products (3P) for better productivity, better profitability and better performance. The highlight of the 3P product introduction is SUMO TEC, which features a new series of premium tungsten carbide grades to meet the contemporary machining challenges of the metalcutting industry. The new series of carbide grades will excel metalcutting performances to new achievements in drilling, milling, turning and grooving applications. Complementing SUMO TEC, ISCAR has developed a new series of tools and inserts branded SUMO Lines. New SUMO TEC coating technology significantly extends insert tool life as a result of a unique innovative substrate scientifically engineered by ISCAR. In addition the SUMO TEC grades feature the most advanced coating technology using the CVD and PVD processes. The PVD process is composed of ISCAR’s AL-TEC coating technology. The CVD coating is based on ISCAR’s ALPHA-TEC technology, which has proven to be superiorly resistant to wear followed by a unique process which provides improved tool life, low insert surface stresses and an evenly coated top surface. The even surface contributes to smooth uninterrupted chip flow, less generated heat and less friction. The new process improves toughness and chipping resistance, thus reducing friction and built-up edge, which in turn prolongs tool life at increased machining conditions for all types of workpiece material. www.iscarmetals.com
