Iscar’s GEHSR/L-SL tool family for Swiss-type and screw machines are an improved version of its current GEHSR/L screw-clamped tools. According to the company, the new system enables securely clamping inserts with a key from either free side of the tool. After the clamping torx screw is activated from one side of the tool, a sealing plastic screw blocks the opposite side to prevent chip entry. If indexing is required from the opposite side, the screw can be switched to the other side. Inserts can be indexed without removing the tool from the toolholder, and the tools’ shorter head design is said to offer higher rigidity and improved machining stability, enabling higher cutting conditions and improved surface finishes.

The grooving and turning tools are available in 10-, 12- and 16-mm shank sizes with GEPI and GEMI inserts in different geometries and widths ranging from 2.2 to 3.2 mm. Iscar also offers the GHSR\L-JHP-SL variant with high-pressure coolant capability, featuring three independent coolant inlet ports.
