Iscar’s DoveIQTurn clamping mechanism can firmly hold double-sided inserts featuring double negative prism flanks.
The dovetailed pocket and insert prismatic flanks prevent the insert from being lifted by the cutting forces. Double-sided dove tailed prismatic flank inserts are firmly held in place.
The cutting forces tend to cause the insert to tilt in lever clamp tools, whereas in this new clamping method, this phenomenon has been eliminated, claims Iscar.
The clamping mechanism enables turning at higher feed rates with a heavier chip load, suitable for today’s new turning centres.
