IQ 845 FSY-RO7 is a new face mill from Iscar that provides high positive rake for a softer cut and smoother entry even at high feeds, according to the company.

Inserts for this cutter feature reinforced cutting edges and wiper flats for better surface finish.

The new indexable inserts offer a solution for increasing productivity and profitability when machining all types of materials. The inserts’ new clamping geometries, available in a wide range, assure accurate cutting angles, excellent chip control, perfect surface quality, high stability, and the possibility for machining all types of materials by use of the latest substrate materials, claims Iscar. The new dovetail shaped inserts enable machining much faster creating higher productivity, according the company.
