Iscar introduces three new chipformers: The R3P, M3P and F3P. All three chipformers has a reinforced cutting edge with positive rake angles for smooth cutting and reduced cutting forces.
The R3P chipbreaker is for rough machining of steel, and machining application range is four to 12 mm depth of cut (DOC) and 0.4 to one mm/rev. The M3P chipbreaker is for medium machining of steel, and machining application range is 0.5 to six mm DOC and 0.15-0.60 mm/rev. The F3P chipbreaker’s machining application area is 0.4 to two mm depth of cut and 0.05-0.25 mm/rev.
