Iscar offers a variety of inserts suitable for the machining of bearings, including its Penta series of multi-corner inserts with five cutting edges used mostly for parting-off operations, seal groove machining, raceway grooving and other applications. These inserts can also be used for trepanning, an axial operation for the separation of one thick forged ring into two separate outer and inner rings. For such operations, the company also offers its BGR and BGMR inserts for wider rings that demand deep separation operations. In addition, Iscar offers multi-parting systems designed for parting a few rings at a time. Such sets are provided with the Tang-Grip and Do-Grip insert as well as the Penta inserts.

These insert products are available in very narrow sizes that enable manufacturers to significantly reduce the width of inserts down to 0.7 and 1.0 mm for raw material savings, the company says.

    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.

  • Rigid Tapping--Sometimes You Need A Little Float

    One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
