ISCAR is launching new tough PVD grades for parting applications on carbon steels, alloyed steels and stainless steels – IC1010 for medium to high speeds and IC1030 for low to medium speeds.
The new grades are based on TiAlN coating which significantly improves toughness and wear resistance, assuring longer tool life. Both grades exhibit better resistance at unstable conditions and interrupted cut. The new grades are available on TANG-GRIP and DO-GRIP inserts.
IC1030 (M25-M45) (P30-P45)
IC1030 – TiAlN coating overlays the very tough substrate IC28 for wide range of applications at high feeds and low to medium speeds. The grade is recommended for interrupted cut and machining at unstable conditions. The cutting parameters should be same as for IC830.
IC1010 ISO (M15-M30) (P15-P30)
IC1010 – TiAlN coating overlays the sub-micron grade IC08. It is recommended for general parting and grooving applications with medium to high cutting speeds and low to medium feeds, and the cutting parameters should be the same as for IC808. IC1030 is intended to replace and phase out gradually older grades IC328 and 928, while IC1010 will replace and phase out IC308 and IC1028 grades. The current insert range with IC1010 and IC1030 grades is introductory and IC1010 and IC1030 will be expanded in the near future.
