From the Past... to the Present
ISCAR is a producer of unique and innovative cutting tools for
metalworking, including turning, grooving, milling, hole making, boring and
The company was founded in 1952 in a wooden garage behind the home of Stef
Wertheimer. After several years of steady expansion, the company
headquarters moved to its current site in the Tefen Industrial Zone,
situated in Israel's Western Galilee.
ISCAR has expanded from a single marketing and manufacturing facility in
Israel to a multinational company with representation in over 50 countries.
The innovation that has made the company one of the fastest growing in the
industry stems from the creative thinking of ISCAR's employees. Throughout
ISCAR, hard-working individuals apply themselves to the creation of
efficient, practical and economical solutions for clients all over the
ISCAR'S TOOLING UPGRADES
ISCAR has been introducing a myriad of new products, each one aiming for
the 3 P's: higher Productivity, Profitability and Performance. Some of the
foremost features of these new products:
- New grades and coatings to enable cutting tools to machine faster,
run cooler, resist built-up edge and last longer.
- New geometries to reduce cutting forces, save energy, improve chip
control and provide more edges per insert.
- More versatile multifunction tools to support the "complete
machining" trend on CNC mill-turn centers.
- Stronger self-clamping designs on stationary tools, enabling them to
withstand heavy duty interrupted cuts.
The new HELIDO square S845 SXMU 1606 ADTR-MM insert
has 8 helical right-hand cutting edges, providing a very economical
solution. It is very thick and strong and has a wiper which leaves an
excellent surface finish. The insert is clamped by a strong M5 screw into an
inclined dovetail pocket which provides a very rigid clamping. Due to the
most advanced production technology, excellent grade combinations, unique
chip deflector and positive cutting angles, the new face milling tools
family features high durability, low cutting forces and excellent tool life.
The new insert can be used for machining steel, stainless steel and cast
iron at very high machining parameters. The tools are available in a
diameter range of 40-315 mm. They can machine 45° slanted shoulders up
to 7 mm depth. Users of tools carrying SEKT or SEKN single-ended, positive
inserts will find the new S845 F45SX..-R16 tools more attractive, regarding
price per corner and performance.
The HELIDO family from Iscar cutting tools combines the most advantageous
features of both the HELIMILL (helical cutting edge and positive rake angle)
and the MILL2000 (strong construction), which are the most suitable for
heavy milling applications
ISO standard tools perform most of the industry's
chip removal. The applications range from finishing to roughing. As a
full-line supplier of metalworking tools, ISCAR naturally provides the full
ISO range of quality tools. All standard geometries are supplied, including
the most popular trigon shape. These semi-triangular turning inserts used
for axial and face turning, feature three 80° corner cutting edges.
They replace the rhombic inserts that had only two cutting edges, thus
saving production time and cost while maximizing insert life. ISCAR offers a
variety of unique chipformer and grade combinations that provide solutions
to most of modern industry's machining needs.
ISCAR is launching a completely new line of external and internal tools as
well as large size inserts for the heavy duty applications, called SUMOTURN.
Heavy duty turning applications feature relatively large depths of cut, high
feed rates and rough, non-uniform surfaces to be machined. These
applications require both tough carbide grades and specifically designed
chipformers. The recently introduced SUMO TEC carbide grades enable ISCAR to
cope better with heavy duty turning. The new tools expand the range of ISCAR
tools for rough turning applications. Lever Lock tools are recommended for
large depth of cut and interrupted cut applications
