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.
ISCAR's SUMOCHAM drill family is the next evolution
of the very successful CHAMDRILL and CHAMDRILLJET families. The new family
has similar features, with improved head and pocket design, no setup time,
Fast Metal Removal and economical indexing.
The SUMOCHAM comprises a revolutionary clamping system that enables
improved productivity output rates, while enabling more insert indexes. The
shank itself is designed with twisted nozzles and exhibits a durable and
stably constructed body.
The indexable heads are available in four different standard geometries,
designed for drilling steel, exotic materials, cast iron or aluminum. The
unique pocket design of the SUMOCHAM takes good advantage of the cutting
forces, which are mechanically exerted upon the tool. These forces are then
converted into gripping forces that are used for tightening the insert
towards the back of the pocket. In that sense, the more cutting forces
applied, the better gripping forces obtained.
In addition, the clamping forces around the connection area generate little
strain, preventing any potential plastic deformation and by that providing
at least triple the amount of head indexes. The most important attribute of
the new clamping design is therefore a very substantial increase in
productivity. All of these features provide the most productive and most
profitable solution for the hole making industry.
Power Chuck - Heavy Duty Clamping Power for Fast
Metal Removal With the MAXIN tool, only a small tightening torque compresses
the frontal nose, providing an extremely high gripping force. It is designed
for roughing and finishing applications in milling where high torque
transmission, maximum accuracy, compactness and easy operation are required.
- The clamping nut is not threaded (as in ER collet chucks)
- Designed for direct chucking of the tool shank (no need for
intermediate collet) for maximum gripping force
- Sealed nut construction
- No axial drawback of the tool shank as chuck is tightened
- Thick wall construction to withstand greater side loading forces
The high gripping force achieved by the MAXIN Power Chuck results from the
shallow nose tapered cone (1) with helical slot (3) inside the internal
chuck bore. It exerts a very high clamping force when the clamping nut (2)
is rotated in the axial direction. The shallow taper of the tool nose (1)
and the angled position of the needle bearing (4) that sit in the cage
create the axial movement of the clamping nut (2). This unique clamping
mechanism eliminates axial movement of the shank while clamping, simplifying
the preset process. Runout Accuracy: Maximum runout at 100 mm Overhang is
less than 0.01 mm
