ISCAR’s 5 cutting edge insert PENTACUT 24 & 34 designed for multifunction applications including grooving, parting, recessing and chamfering. This cost effective insert is designed to perform grooving operations and parting off solid bars up to 20 mm in diameter. Each cutting edge on the pentagonal shaped insert is equipped with a unique J&C-type chipformer that provides excellent chip control in grooving, parting and recessing (light side turning) applications. PENTACUT also has the ability to perform threading applications. Available are full profile inserts in the following thread standards: ISO, UN, Whitworth, BSPT and NPT. Partial profile inserts are avaialble in 600 (MT) and 550 (WT) profiles. The insert is tangentially mounted on a side of the holder, positioned against two peripheral contact surfaces to ensure accuracy of center height. Clamping of the insert is by a side torx screw. The torx screw can be activated from either side of the holder to enable insert indexing (rotation) without the having to remove the holder from the machine turret. The short head of the holder ensures minimal overhang and high stability. The PENTACUT tools can be mounted on any type of lathe.
