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.

A Message from Iscar Metals, Inc.

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.

Special Message

The TORMILL is designed to perform facing, plunging, and undercutting using the same uniquely shaped insert.
