Single-Ended Insert For Parting

The single-ended Tang-Grip insert for parting is available from Iscar with a custom clamping method. The company says this design allows rigid clamping in a tangentially oriented pocket and increases pocket life by as many as three times more than the company’s Self-Grip mechanism. Unlike the Self-Grip system, which exerts machining forces on a short stopper, the Tang-Grip supports machining forces with a long, rigid rear wall.

The single-ended Tang-Grip insert for parting is available from Iscar with a custom clamping method. The company says this design allows rigid clamping in a tangentially oriented pocket and increases pocket life by as many as three times more than the company’s Self-Grip mechanism. Unlike the Self-Grip system, which exerts machining forces on a short stopper, the Tang-Grip supports machining forces with a long, rigid rear wall.

According to the company, tool and pocket life also are improved by the insert’s free-flowing, unobstructed configuration. Chips can flow freely from the cutting zone, which can reduce wear on the tool or tool pocket while machining. The inserts are available with J and C type chipformers as well as neutral and angular frontal cutting edges. Blades and inserts are available in 0.79", 0.118" and 0.157" widths in IC928 and IC908 grades.
