Iscar has developed a family of reinforced Tang-Grip blades for Traub (TNL and TNK models) and Index (MS18C model) turn-mill machines. These blades, due to their reinforced construction, can be used in long-overhang machining. Only the part of the blade required for penetration (cutting depth) has a reduced width. The rest is thick, which improves rigidity and stiffness, the company says. These blades are suited for parting and grooving between the main and subspindle of turn-mill machines.
Other additions to the Grip family include Do-Grip inserts made from the Sumo Tec carbide grades: IC807 IC808 and IC830. The coating technology and surface treatment of the grades improve insert life, and low surface stress and an evenly coated top surface prolong tool life. The even surface contributes to smooth, uninterrupted chip flow and generates less heat and less friction. This process improves toughness and chipping resistance, which reduces friction and built-up edge.
