ISCAR is launching a new SWISSCUT XL line featuring up to 10mm grooving depth capability. The new line will enable deeper machining when compared to the existing SWISSCUT INNOVAL line, enabling parting off up to 20mm diameter and turning at up to 5mm depth of cut.
Two clamping screws provide very strong clamping and stability. The insert clamping screws can be reached from both tool sides and there is no need to remove insert clamping screws for indexing, which means no danger of falling parts.
The front insert extraction/insertion feature enables indexing the insert on the machine while maintaining a minimum overhang from the gang tool. A compact tool design with no projecting elements allows insertion of the tool through the constrained slots of a Swiss-type machine magazine.
A stopper plane beyond the cutting zone enables use of the second cutting edge of the insert, even if the first used cutting edge is completely broken.
The tools are offered in 12 and 16mm square shanks and inserts are available for parting, back turning, front turning and groove-turn threading applications. Inserts are available in carbide grade IC1008.
