New Cutting Tool Range Meets Productivity Needs of Industry 4.0
Iscar is displaying a selection of its new Logiq cutting tool range designed to maximize machining processes and optimize performance.
Iscar is displaying a selection of its new Logiq cutting tool range designed to maximize machining processes and optimize performance. Integrating Industry 4.0 standards, the tool lines are said to meet today’s machining center demands for increased productivity.
The Logiq fast-feed milling lines feature indexable cutters, solid carbide end mills and Multi-Master tools with replaceable cutting heads. Logiq4Feed enables rough milling at high metal removal rates and incorporates a narrow double-sided insert with four cutting edges. Mill4Feed is a family of tools carrying square, single-sided inserts with four cutting edges, designed for machining almost any type of metals. The Tang4Feed shell mill family is based on the tangential principle of insert clamping to ensure a highly rigid structure and impressive ramping down abilities. Micro3Feed and NanFeed use triangular inserts and feature minimal diameters.
Other highlights include Logiq3Cham, which significantly improves drilling productivity, Logiq4Turn for enhanced performance in general-duty turning operations, Logiq8Tang, a 90-degree square milling shoulder, and Logiq5Grip, a high-efficiency solution for parting and grooving.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
