SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, Cutting Tools
Need cutting tools? There are so many to choose from it can be almost overwhelming, but here are a few MMT has showcased in recent months just in case you missed them.

Iscar H606 milling cutter

Double-Sided Round Inserts Designed for Stable Cutting
Unlike conventional round insert cutters, Iscar’s H606 family of double-sided inserts mount into the cutter body with dovetailed clamping for strength and cutting accuracy.

SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, Cutting Tools
It’s Tuesday, and that means we’re continuing our weekly IMTS Exhibitor Product Showcase.

Iscar Deca IQ Thread

Tangentially-Clamped Threading Insert with 10 Cutting Corners
Iscar’s Deca IQ Thread is a round insert with five double-sided corners, providing 10 functional cutting edges. The line is designed to boost production, raise quality and reduce costs.

Iscar Sumo Tec post-coating treatment

Post-Coating Treatment Adds Strength to CVD-, PVD-Coated Grades
Iscar offers a variety of grades coated using a combination of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD) technology. The company’s Sumo Tec post-coating treatment is designed to deliver improved strength and wear resistance to carbide grades coated in this way.

NTB collaborates with Siemens, Sandvik Coromant, Iscar and Kennametal to make GTC data exchange format available to the public
NTB Interstate University of Technology Buchs launched gtc-tools.com to provide information to the public on the Generic Tool Catalog cutting tool data exchange format.

Rough Milling: Speed vs. Power
A look at what works in rough milling applications with solid carbide end mills.

Right Machine, Cutter and Toolpath Formula
CAM tool paths that control tool motion, the right machine and cutter ease the consistent application of a high-speed approach. See the right formula in action.

Iscar PiccoCut face grooving tools with coolant delivery

Face Grooving Tools with Coolant Delivery Aid Efficiency
Iscar’s PiccoCut line features a reinforced geometry designed for efficient deep face grooving, particularly external/internal and along a shaft.

Slideshow: Amerimold 2015 Preview
Considered THE event for mold manufacturing, Amerimold covers many facets of the industry, from its exhibits to its technical conference. Here's a small sampling of what will be highlighted for attendees.

End Mills Offer Insert Locking for Stable Machining
Iscar will highlight its Multi-Master solid carbide indexable end mill, which features a smart insert locking mechanism for more stable machining and increased productivity.

Boring Bars Feature Internal Coolant Channels
Iscar has expanded its internal turning application range with positive and negative boring tools, and small-size inserts that accommodate small boring diameters.

Optimizing Common Roughing Technology
Keeping on top of the ever-advancing range of cutting technologies, edge geometry designs, materials and coatings is essential for achieving higher productivity, faster metal removal rates and more cost-effective machining processes.

Small-Sized Inserts Offer Cost Savings
Available in a range of geometries, corner radii, chipformers and carbide grades, Iscar’s small-sized ISOTurn inserts are designed for applications where larger inserts are unnecessarily used, offering savings on cost per cutting edge.

Okuma and Boeing to Present on STEP-NC ISO Standard During IMTS
During the upcoming IMTS 2014 show and the Trends in Advanced Machining, Manufacturing and Materials (TRAM) conference, The Boeing Company and Okuma America will share their experiences in technology leadership with a new implementation of the STEP-NC ISO standard.

A New Take on Gundrilling
A gundrill with indexable inserts, featuring two cutting edges (fully effective).

Creating a Balanced Cut
Decrease machine downtime and increase productivity with the right gundrilling tool.

TANG-PLUNGE Unique Shell Mill Plunge

Special Message

Iscar is introducing the TANGPLUNGE, a new side plunger which is the first in a new generation of plungers. The advantages of the TANGPLUNGE include the ability to machine at long overhang with minimal bending forces. This results in less vibration, noise, and tool deviation, as with typical cutters. These inserts are tangentially clamped on the frontal face of the tools creating excellent flatness. There are four cutting edges on the right-handed insert and features a positive rake face for reduced load during machining. The pocket resembles that of the TANGMILL tool which features high durability and excellent cutting performance. There are also coolant holes for efficient edge flushing and chip evacuation while machining.

TORMILL with New Unique Insert

Special Message

The TORMILL is designed to perform facing, plunging, and undercutting using the same uniquely shaped insert. The specially designed peripherally ground insert features a one of a kind shape and clearance angle making it possible to perform a number of operations on a variety of materials. The small corner radii and balanced design of the TORMILL makes it ideal for side plunging, small corner, as well as very large overhang operations and produces no vibration. It is also possible to ramp into material using the TORMILL should that be required. These attributes make it ideal for the die and mold industry as well as other applications that require extremely long overhang.

FEEDMILL for Super Fast Feed Milling

Special Message

Iscar’s new FEEDMILL family facilitates milling at very high feed rates - up to 0.138 inch/tooth - for high-volume metal removal. The new face mills and end mills use three special types of trigon shaped inserts (FF WO…) and are available in multiple carbide grades enabling the FEEDMILL family of tooling to be applied to a wide range of materials and various applications. The FF WO… inserts have a large radius cutting-edge-configuration that enables running at very high feed rates. The resultant cutting forces are directed axially towards the spindle. This design provides high stability and enables machining at high feed rates even in long overhang applications. In addition, the new FF WO… inserts are designed with a cylinder on the bottom that fits into a corresponding pocket on the tool holder. This unique design provides very firm clamping and relieves most of the stresses normally exerted on the clamping screw. This allows the inserts and cutting tool body to bear the higher cutting forces resulting from high feed rates.
