Another example is TANG4FEED, a family of fast feed shell mills carrying tangentially clamped rhombic inserts (Pic. 2). The mills are designed mostly for rough machining medium- and large-size cavities and pockets.
The tangential clamping principle, combined with a dovetail profile of matching surfaces for secure insert mounting, ensures a durable mill structure. The insert’s rhombic shape significantly improves mill performance in rampingdown and side-plunging operations. The TANG4FEED inserts are double-sided, resulting in 4 cutting edges.
The inserts of both mentioned families are provided in several cutting geometries for optimal milling of different engineering materials.
The variety of HFM tool family options inevitably raises the question how to choose the most suitable tool. In addition to ISCAR’s ITA (Iscar Tool Advisor) software, the company developed a quick tool selector guide, a compass for manufacturers to find the most effective solution for fast feed milling.
The case of ISCAR’s HFM line is good evidence that developing FF milling cutters is still far from its high point. The newly introduced tool families offer logical answers to real manufacturer demands. HFM, as a productive method of rough machining, has optimistic prospects and the metalworking industry will continue to require faster and faster milling cutters for high metal removal rates.
ISCAR is expanding its parting line by adding LOGIQ-5-GRIP pentagonal adapters with 5 pockets for TAG 2 and 3mm widths.
A new family of tools and economical 5 pocket adapters for existing TANG-GRIP inserts in sizes of 2 and 3mm, the adapters allow parting applications of bar diameters up to Ø45.
LOGIQ-5-GRIP features include no setup time after pocket replacement. The back of the adapters is designed with V shape geometry (wedge effect) to ensure maximum clamping forces and tool stability and several adapters can be clamped on one holder. The tools and adapters are designed for JET-CUT cooling up to 340 bar.
