Iscar has introduced the Tang-F-Grip parting system.

The Tang-F-Grip features a heavy duty tool block carrying square blades that feature four pockets, with a unique parting concept capable of parting off up to 120mm (4.72 in.) bar diameter to optimize performance.

Tang-F-Grip can be mounted and operated on all machine types, including multi-task and machining centers on X-AXIS, without any need for special adjustment. The system enables the mounting of both Tang-F-Grip and Do-Grip blades on the same blocks.

The square blades possess a support system that provides vibration-free grooving and parting. Tang-F-Grip also saves on setup time as, in cases of pocket damage, the block’s configuration allows a blade to be rotated to a new pocket without setup.

Tang-F-Grip is intended for high feed parting. It extends insert life, improves surface finish and part straightness and features high stability – especially when parting large diameters. The new patented blades reduce cutting time and also enable significant material savings - for instance, a 120mm (4.72 in.) bar can be cut with a 3mm (0.19 in.) blade with HF (high feed) inserts at a feed rate of up to 0.4 mm/rev (.0157 ipr).

The HF‎ tangential single ended insert was developed to enable efficient parting at high feed rates, by use of a unique chipformer technology. The insert features a new insert chipformer to allow unobstructed chip flow, which increases insert and blade tool life and leads to productivity gains.

All Tang-Grip inserts can be integrated into the Tang-F-Grip system, which is also compatible with Do-Grip DGN double sided twisted geometry parting inserts, to provide a wide choice of parting widths for all application ranges.

The quest to reduce levels of power consumption in the global metal cutting sector is not a new trend; today it has become an essential technical requirement.
