Iscar’s Dove IQ Grip tooling system features a locking mechanism to accommodate wide inserts measuring 10, 12 and 14 mm, and mounted on a 53-mm blade. The tools consist of blade-carrying cartridges attached by a rigid dovetail connection. The system is designed so that the cartridge absorbs damage in case of a crash during machining. According to the company, this capability, combined with the cartridge system’s compatibility with specials and exchangeable heads, provides savings on tool cost. 

Iscar says the system’s frontal locking mechanism needs only a half-turn to lock the insert and its lack of an upper clamp or jaw promotes unobstructed chip flow. Additionally, there is no risk of falling parts because there is no need to fully extract the screw. A bottom frontal coolant K-type system (high pressure possible), is said to prolong tool life and improve chip formation, especially in deep, wide and heavy grooving operations.
