Iscar’s SD-SP15, a family of narrow slotting and groove milling cutters, features 1.25” diameter milling heads with eight teeth in a width range of 0.125” - 0.250” for maximum depth of cut up to 0.315”. The cutters consist of interchangeable solid carbide T-slot milling heads and cylindrical steel shanks assembled by means of a unique spline connection.

Isoturn Inserts Save Money
In many turning applications, machinists tend to use larger inserts than are actually required for the machining parameters being applied.

Iscar Tiger-IQ Grooving Tools and Inserts Offer User-Friendly Locking Mechanism
The DoveIQGrip line is an evolution of the Tiger wide grooving inserts family.

More Tools for Swiss-Types
Iscar is expanding its line of square-shank toolholders for Swiss-type automatics and CNC machine tools by adding new tools for high pressure coolant and also tools without the internal coolant feature.

Innovations in Five-Edged Parting and Grooving Inserts
Here's an alternative to the standard circlip-type grooving system, offering five cutting edges with fast indexing from either side.

High Qline Indexable Milling Insert Boasts Asymmetric Shape
The Iscar products of the High Qline family of cutting tools offer an indexable milling Insert with an asymmetric shape.

Iscar's Tools Focus on Increased Productivity with Smart Insert Locking
Iscar's new tools focus on increased productivity with smart insert locking mechanisms, which therefore create a more stable machining process.

Hydraulic and Weldon Side-Clamping Combinations Provide Ultimate Clamping Security
