The Piccocut face grooving range is intended mainly for external/internal and grooving along a shaft. These tools have a reinforced geometry that aids efficient deep face grooving and is available in 3-, 4- and 5-mm widths, for depths of as much as 40 mm and a minimal grooving diameter of 16 mm.

The solid carbide bars have two holes that enable precise coolant delivery to the cutting edge and the frontal flank. When high pressure coolant (up to 100 bar) is induced through the coolant holes, the resulting chips are small and easily pushed out of the groove. Other advantages provided by Piccocut’s cooling configuration are a substantial increase in tool life and improved surface finish characteristics.

The Picco bars are available in Iscar’s IC1008 PVD coated grade, which is suitable for machining across a range of cutting speeds and on a variety of workpiece materials.
