Iscar and Megatel held a joint event at Iscar's Oakville, ON facility recently to showcase the latest in machining and cutting strategies.
Attendees witnessed live demonstrations of milling and drilling on an AWEA BM1200 equipped with Mastercam software and live turning on a Goodway GS 280Y.
Both machines were equipped with Iscar tooling to demonstrate performance. Tooling on the machines included the FFQ and H600 fast feed milling inserts, SumoCham drilling, the ChatterFree end mill and the Tang Plunge tangentially clamped inserts with four cutting edges, and a rigid cutter body for plunging operations.
Ronnie O'Byrne, general manager of Iscar Tools, said the presentation was in part an introduction event to highlight the new partnership with Megatel. The company plans to hold more events in the near future to showcase new tooling technologies.
