The Iscar Penta Cut insert is an innovative tool with five cutting edges. It can be used for parting off, precision grooving, lateral turning and event threading operations. The company is expanding the product line to include modular adaptors, blade adaptors for large overhangs and specially designed adaptors for use on Davenport and Brown & Sharpe machines.

The Modular Grip adaptor, PCADR/L 24N, can be mounted in all of the Modular Grip toolholders. The toolholder accepts adaptors from all of the Iscar Grip product lines. A three-screw mounting system easily allows the operator to switch between adaptor families or different width adaptors for the insert to be used. The toolholder never has to be removed from the machine turret. This saves costly set up time when changes are made. The PCADR/L 24N is capable of holding a range of insert widths between 0.020" and 0.125" in the same adaptor. Grooving and part off depths to 0.236" are possible with this family of tools. All of the adaptors now come with the company's "Hard Touch" surface treatment. Hard Touch is a nickel-based coating that is impervious to rust and corrosion. Its high hardness (more than 60 HRC) promotes longer tool life by preventing chip erosion and heat buildup from chip contact.

For use where a larger overhang is encountered, Iscar has introduced the new PCHBR/L adaptor blade. This blade-style toolholder fits into most of the standard tool blocks that accept 26-mm and 32-mm blades, such as the SGTBU style. This makes the Penta Cut available for use on all standard CNC lathes.
