According to the company, the SWISSCUT tools are characterized by their ergonomic insert clamping and simple handling. The tool system is used for Swiss-type lathes controlled by CNC and for Swiss-type automatics. The company says this compact tool system provides accurate indexing of the insert. The stable, tangentially clamped insert is said to be indexed without removing the toolholder from the machine turret. In addition, clamping and releasing the insert can be accomplished from either side of the toolholder. The company says bottom and rear prisms provide stability and precision when turning in alternating directions or where relatively high loads are applied.

The company says the tool system comes with front and back clamping options along with a variety of square shanks in sizes 10, 12, 16, 9.52 and 12.7 mm (0.375", 0.393", 0.472", 0.50" and 0.63'). Likewise, there are different insert options which can come with the company’s IC1008 grade which can be used for low to medium cutting speeds. The company says this grade can also be used for machining heat-resistant alloys, austenitic stainless steels, hardened steel and for unfavorable conditions such as an interrupted cut.
