Iscar now offers a family of small face grooving and turning tools that stand up to high machining rates in applications prone to high tool failure rates. Mincut MIFR includes eight inserts and tools that incorporate a unique design and clamping system that prolongs tool life, the company says. The inserts are screw clamped into a long pocket in the toolbar.

The inserts and toolbars cover the diameter range from 8 to 17 mm (0.315” to 0.669”) and grooving depths of as much as 5.5 mm (0.216”). The company offers a complete line of face grooving tools for diameters from 6 mm.

As a result of its unique geometry and internal coolant delivery, the grooving tool delivers uninterrupted chip flow that can be safely used for grooving in deep holes. It can also handle rotating applications, functioning like a single-point trepanning tool.

Inserts, in hard, fine-grain grade IC 908 for high chipping resistance, are available in widths from 1.5 to 2.2 mm (060” to .087”).
