Iscar’s Mincut inserts and tools for face grooving and turning applications now feature an expanded diameter range, from 10 to 34 mm, and a grooving depth of 9 mm. The MIFR 10 inserts are screw-clamped into a long pocket of the MIFHR bars. The rigid clamping prolongs tool life and enables increased machining parameters.
 
The tool features an internal coolant hole, which is directed to the cutting edge. It can be used for grooving deep holes and in rotating applications. The tool is said to provide uninterrupted chip flow on the insert rake.
 
Standard inserts are available in 2- to 3-mm widths and are made from IC908 grade.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.
